MR. AND MRS. GERMAN REED'S ENTERTAINMENT. 

A ifETV sketch from the pen of Mr. Burnand, the music by Mr. ¥. H. Cowen, was 
produced at the St. Q-eorge's Hall, on Monday evening, with the most complete and 
fully-deserved success. It is called " Too many by One " — the " one " being a tyran- 
nical aunt, "past a certain age," who undertakes to upset her half-brother's household 
by the exhibition of all manner of interesting little crotchets and vagaries, which she at 
last convinces herself are perfectly superfluous to the happiness of the little family, into 
which she has so obligingly introduced them. Mrs. E,eed, as the aunt who takes so 
much pleasant interest in the welfare of all who are near her, played the character to 
the life — her really genial and clever acting, supplemented by her admirable singing 
and a genuine feeling for her art, was a perfect study : there is no such acting to be 
found on the modern stage. We say this advisedly — a rich vein of real, natural, and 
quiet humour ran through the whole performance. Mr. Corney Q-rain exhibited his 
undoubted talent, both as actor and singer, in two or three widely different characters ; 
and Miss Leonora Braham proved herself the possessor of an excellent voice, and a 
greatly improved method of using it. Mr. Alfred Reed, a thorough artist, and a first- 
rate comedian, played the half-brother capitally. His acting, however, in the last sketch 
was something to be remembered — something vvhix^h deserved the highest critical praise ; 
— his portrait of the Railway Porter is a perfect model of acting of the most genuine 
type. In a tlieatre where comedy is appreciated, such an actor as Mr. Alfred Reed, 
whose perception of character, and its embodiment, is perfect, would be found of the 
highest value. In reference to the libretto of the new sketch, we may remark that it 
is of a refined and yet exceedingly comic character — the song in which the nervous 
poet (Mr. Corney Grain) has been unable to express the depth of his feeling and has 
consequently been obliged to fill up the blanks he has left in his MS. by singing and 
repeating the word '•' blank," produced the most striking effect. The music is simple, 
pretty, and clever — both melody and harmon showing considerable musical knowledge. 
The music of the sketch, " He's Coming," is the production of Mr. Q-erman Reed, a 
sound and thinking musician ; it contains several pleasing Balfian kind of tunes, admir- 
ably and skilfully ti^eated. Altogether, there is no entertainment in London that 
gives so much satisfaction to the public, or is more worthy of its patronage 
and support. 

Queen's Theatre. — This theatre will open for the summer season on Saturday next, 
when Victorien Sardou's comedy of" L'Oncle Sam " will be performed by the company 
of the Vaudeville Theatre, Paris, the role of Mrs. Bellamy being played by Madlle. 
Pargueil. Mr. C. C; Dane is appointed treasurer, and Mous. C. Alias assistant 
acting manager. 

NoKTH Woolwich Gardens. — The summer season at these gardens commenced on 
Saturday when Mr. Holland provided an extensive round of entertainments, the princi- 
pal features of which are two new ballets invented and arranged by Mr. J. Milano, and 
the appearance of the artistes of the Eoyal Surrey Theatre. Various other amusements 
took place during the day. 

Promenade Concerts. — M. Eiviere contemplates a series of Promenade Concerts 
on a grand scale, at Drury Lane Theatre, in the autumn, in opposition to those at 
Covent Garden, which are to be under the conductorship of M. Herve. The aff"air is 
not settled, some difl&culty existing with the house authorities. The season, if it take 
place at all, will necessarily be a short one, probaby of a month's duration, as the 
dramatic season commences at Drury Lane early in the autumn.

And MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 



No. 16,286. FRIDAY, July 3, 1874. Price Id. 



CRYSTAL PALACE COMPANY. 
The ordinary general meeting of the shareholders of this company was held on 
Tuesday at the Cannon-street Hotel, Mr. T. Hughes in the chair. The report, which 
was taken as read, showed an increase of admissions for the year 1873-4, as compared 
with the years 1872-3, amounting to 29,547. After alluding to the various attractions 
within the palace during the six months, the report mentioned that the directors 
recommended the election of Mr. Grove, the secretary, to a seat at the board. — The 
Chairman, spoke generally upon the success which had attended the entertainments, the 
educational departments, &c., and mentioned that the directors desired to have power 
to apply for an act of parliament to permit the sale of spirituous liquors within the 
building and grounds. This measure was rendered necessary by the opposition to the 
application for a renewal of their license, by the Alliance. — Mr. Mitchell seconded the 
motion, upon which a discussion, followed upon the numerous details of the general 
management of the palace, in the course of which several amendments were lost, and 
ultimately the report was adopted, and Mr. Grove elected to a seat at the board. The 
following resolution was also carried : " That the resolution of the ordinary general 
meeting held on the 19th of December, 1870, with reference to the application of the 
dividends arising from the stock bequeathed to the company by the late William Jeffery 
Etches, be rescinded or modified, and that such dividends and the dividends from time 
to time to ariise from the stock to be purchased in pursuance of this resolution, be hence- 
forth appropriated to the purchase of the ordinary stock of the company, and that the 
directors take such steps, as may be necessary to remove any difficulties which 
there may be in the way of giving effect to this resolution, owing to the form of the 
bequest or otherwise." — The directors having obtained powers to go to parliament in 
order to make good their position with regard to the sale of spirituous liquors, the 
proceedings closed. 

Madame Tussaud's Exhibition. — Contemporary history is well represented here, 
through recent additions. The three Titchborne judges, the Claimant, Mr. Hawkins, 
Q.C., and Dr. Kenealy represent one well-tried phase of English life, while Dr. 
Livingstone, H. M. Stanley, and Kalulu form another group of travelled interest. At 
home we have our new Duchess, the handsome Duke of Edinburgh, and the Emperor of 
Russia — each and all of whom have occupied, and still do occupy, public attention and 
attract public feeling. Sir G-arnet Wolseley stands alone in his glory, sole represen- 
tative of the late African War — a deep seated eye, well decorated breast, and a cool 
collected bearing mark well the modern British hero. Magnificent new dresses have 
also been added, and are fittingly worn by the Princesses and ladies of Queen Victoria's 
j; Court, Indeed, if once detail were ventured upon a volume might be written — suffice 
B it then to conclude with the observation that the child's early admiration and delight at 
ei Madame Tussaud's is confirmed by the visits of either the man or woman. — From a 
Correspondent . 

EoTAL Polytechnic. — The other afternoon, a large audience assembled to hear the 
first of a series of educational lectures, which are to be given weekly at this institution. 
The lecture (on a botanical subject) was ably delivered by Mr. Edward B. Aveling, who 
was exceedingly happy in his method of illustration. Upon taking their seats in the 
large theatre each visitor was supplied by the attendants with a buttercup ; and the 
lecturer then in a very lucid manner, explained the structure of the plant, inviting the 
audience to follow him in his description by an actual analysis of the plants they held 
in their hands.

And MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 



No. 16,287. SATURDAY, July 4, 1874, Price Id. 



ALEXANDRA PALACE. 

The directors of this company are holding out great inducements to the public to be- 
come season ticket holders ; firstly, they state that the adult guinea, and the children's 
half-guinea season tickets are admisible from the present time to all fetes, concerts, 
entertainments, and the grounds, for twelve months, dating from " the opening ceremony.-" 
They also call special attention to the fact that the guinea season-ticket entitles the 
holder to participate in the annual distribution of a valuable collection of works of art, 
consisting of original pictures in oil and water colours, statuary, porcelain and pottery, 
bronzes, statuettes, engravings, photographs, and other choice examples of art. The 
directors also propose to set aside 20 per cent, for the purchase of high-class works of 
art, so that each holder of a season ticket will be entitled to participate in the bona-fide 
money-value of two hundred pounds ; for example, if the sale of season tickets reaches 
10,000 (and there is every reason to believe that it will far exceed this number) the 
prizes will represent no less a sum than two thousand pounds, and so on in proportion 
to the number of tickets sold. For full particulars as to the mode of distribution, we 
refer our readers to the advertisements in the daily papers. 

Banquet to Me. Toole. — The complimentary dinner to Mr. Toole at Willis's 
Rooms was largely attended by his dramatic and literary friends. Lord Bosebery pre- 
sided, and among the company at the cross table were Lord A . Paget, Mr. H. L. 
Bateman, Mr. Barry Sullivan,"^ Mr. Chas. Mathews, Mr. B. Webster, Mr. Frith, Dr. 
Quain, Mr. Creswick, Mr. Edmund Tates, &c. Mr. Toole made a long and interesting 
speech — its tone and style being very complimentary to the taste and feeling 
of the speaker. 

Anecdote of Mes. Siddons. — The following anecdote, told by Mrs. Siddons, is one 
of the order ben trovato, and is at least as good as any of its kind. The incident, of 
course, took place in the early part of the great actress's career. She says : — 

I was to perform a piece — something like those pretty little aflecting dramas they get 
up now at the minor theatres — and in my character I represented a poor friendless 
orphan girl, reduced to the most wretched poverty. A heartless tradesman prosecutes 
the sad heroine for a heavy debt, and insists on putting her in prison unless some one 
will be bail for her. The girl replies, " Then I have no hope — I have not a friend in the 
world !" " What ! will no one be bail for you to save you from prison ?" asks the stern 
creditor. " I have told you I have not a friend on this earth," was my reply. But 
just as I was uttering the words, I saw a sailor in the upper gallery springing over the 
railing, letting himself down from one tier to another, until he bounded clear over the 
orchestra and footlights, and placed himself beside me in a moment. " Yes, you shall 
have one friend at least, my young woman!" said he, with the greatest expression in his 
honest sun-burnt countenance. " I will go bail for you to any amount ! And as for 
you," turning to the frightened actor, " if you don't bear a hand, shift your moorings, 
you lubber, it will be the worse for you when I come athwart your bows." Every crea- 
ture in the house rose ; the uproar was perfectly indescribable — peals of laughter, 
screams of terror, cheers from his tawny messmates in the gallery, preparatory scrapings 
of violins in the orchestra ; and amid the universal din there stood the unconscious 
cause of it sheltering me, "the poor, distressed young woman," and breathing defiance 
and destruction against my mimic persecutor. He was only persuaded to relinquish his 
care of me by the manager's pretending to arrive and rescue me with a profusion of 
theatrical bank-notes.

And MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 




No. 16,289. TUESDAY, July 7, 1874. Price Id. 

Me. Beock and the Licensing- System. — At the City Sessions ou Saturday Mr. 
C. T. Brock applied for a license to keep and sell fireworks at 109, Cheapside. The 
applicant said his manufactory was at Nunhead, and that he supplied the Crystal Palace 
with fireworks. He had been in business nine years, and during that time no accident 
had occurred to any of his employes. His fireworks were not liable to spontaneous 
ignition, or to explosion by concussion. There were, he had heard, nine persons licensed 
to sell fireworks in the City, and as they were not manufacturers they kept large stocks 
on their premises. His fireworks, to be limited to 561b., would be kept in one of Chat- 
wood's safes, and the quantity of powder in them would only amount to 61b. He wanted to 
use his Cheapside premises more as an office than a store room, there to show samples, 
for he would have a telegraphic communication with his manufactory at Nunhead, and 
in that way execute large orders. The area of the destructive effect of his fireworks 
was limited. — The Bench thought they would not be doing their duty if they granted 
the application, for how were they to tell that no more than 561b. of these inflammable 
things would be kept ou the premises at the same time ? — Mr. Besley said his client 
would assent to an inspection of his premises at any time, and would reduce the weight 
of the fireworks to be kept on the premises to a point below that of 561b. The Bench 
refused to grant the application. We think the magistrates, in Mr. Brock's case, were 
a little too cautious. His application was reasonable enough, and there was no difficulty 
in the way of granting it : the more especially as Mr. Brock explained that his fireworks 
were subject neither to spontaneous combustion, nor to explosion by ignition. Why 
are the nine licenses granted and the tenth refused ? This is one of the things that 
must be placed in the category of those that can neither be explained nor understood. 
Verily, magistrates, in their collective wisdom especially, are something wonderful to 
contemplate. 

The AppEOAcniNG Close of the Hatmaeket. — Mr. Buckstone will take his benefit 
at the Haymarket on the 3rd of next mouth, when the new comedy, " Prince Madcap," 
will be produced. The theatre at the end of the legitimate season will be opened under 
the management of Madlle. Beatrice. 

The Examinee op Stage Plats. — The responsible office of Examiner of Stage Plays 
is now vacant by the resignation of Mr. Donne, and, no doubt, as the acts of this 
official are now regarded with increased interest by the public, the appointment of a 
successor to Mr. Donne will be looked to with some anxiety. Dr. Westland Marston 
is one of the candidates — a man whose published writings are acknowledged to bear the 
stamp of genius, and whose acquaintance with dramatic works, English and foreign, 
cannot admit of a doubt ; while for ripeness of scholarship he is surpassed by few. 
We therefore cordially commend to the Lord Chamberlain's notice the claims of Dr. 
Marston — than whom no man is more fitted faithfully and honourably to undertake the 
office. His literary ability, as we have said, eminently qualifies him to grace the appoint- 
ment, and we earnestly hope he will receive it. 

Miss Helen Eaucit. — There is good reason to expect the speedy reappearance of 
Miss Helen Eaucit at the Theatre Royal, Dublin, where much persuasion is being used 
to induce her to play all the great characters of her repertoire. Lady Macbeth, Imogen, 
and Eosalind are eagerly called for ; and above all, that exquisite and classical 
Antigone, the role which Miss Helen Eaucit has made exclusively her own. 

Miss Soldene. — We are told by the Court Journal that the Lyceum will be opened 
by Mr. Charles Morton on August 1st, when Miss Soldene will play the parts of Mdlle. 
Lange, the Grand Duchess, and La Perichole.

And MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 

No. 16,290. WEDNESDAY, July 8, 1874. Price Id. 

OPENING THE MUSEUMS ON SUNDAY. 

What possible objection can there be to opening the museums on Sunday ? We have 
not heard a single argument against the suggestion — not one that ought to weigh with 
the legislature for a moment. We would have all places of amusement open to the 
public on Sundays excepting ; of course, theatres and concert rooms. Those who feel 
a pleasure in attending such places cannot be induced to give up that pleasure and be 
forced to go to church ; and we maintain that attendance at a place of worship is in no- 
wise inconsistent with taking recreation afterwards. Both may be honestly done ; we 
hold that religion was never intended to make mankind more sad and gloomy, but, on 
the contrary, by imparting a consciousness to us that we are doing our duty, both 
rs spiritually and temporally, religion gladdens the heart, and gives its honest followers 
the right and the power to wear a " cheerful countenance." Religion has nothing in 
common with bigotry ; it is that very association of bigotry with it that makes for the 
latter its greatest enemies. AYhy should a man who has knelt in the sanctuary in the 
morning, and prayed sincerely for himself and his fellows, why should this man, or this 
woman, be debarred from possessing the good which a bountiful Providence has provided 
for the enjoyment of its creatures ? We are not given to sermonizing ; but we must 
grapple with the only argument — if argument it may be called — that is used against the 
opening of the museums and places of recreation generally, on Sundays. Of course 
it will be understood that we are not countenancing the unbridled licence that ia used in 
Trance — we do not advocate the opening of the theatre or the concert room ; our 
advocacy extends only to public gardens, wherein even those who have been to their place 
of worship in the morning may, without reproach, receive both recreation and instruction. 
The puritanical spirit shown by some of the opponents in the House is only worthy 
of ridicule or of the dark ages. The unbounded talent shown by one member of the 
house, especially, ia remarkable ; he voted on May the 8th against closing public-houses 
on Sunday in Ireland, and ou the 16th of the same month in favour of closing museums 
on Sunday in England ! In reference to this funny and amusing gentleman, we may 
quote a not very inapt epigram, which says : 

His creed may truly be described 

As " Toddy and Te Deums "— 
Keep Church and Publics open wide, 

But pray shut up Museums ! 
The vote is good, and pleases well 

Both Brewer and Divine : 
It says " The Sabbath sacred is — 

To Church, to Beer, and Wine." 

The unaccountable folly of endeavouring to reconcile two such conditions as these, 
requires no pointing out — the man who refuses to open the museums to those who 
would feel an interest in the wonders they contain, must indeed have a cloudy brain or 
an impure motive when he, having so voted, opens the door of the public-house. We 
are merely pointing out the inconsistency and absurdity of such conduct. We ourselves 
think they may both be opened — the one with benefit, the other with impunity, but 
certainly the man who votes for the latter is guilty of the grossest inconsistency when 
he opposes the former. The time must come when all such places will be open to the 
public on Sundays. That is our opinion. 

SiGNOE ViANEsi has had the knighthood of the Order of Leopold conferred upon 
him by the King of the Belgians.

And MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 



No. 16,291. THURSDAY, July 9, 1874. Price Id. 

THE LATE JULES JANIN. 

Jules Jaistln" wrote an extraordinary hand. The characters were formed with some 
care, but had not their like in any Jinown alphabet. There were only two compositors 
on the Journal des Dehats who could decipher them. "When he contributed to other 
papers he dictated to his wife. One day he wrote to a friend, who, after an immense 
amount of trouble, managed to make out a few words, from which he supposed that the 
letter was from the eminent critic. He hastened to Passy, and was greeted by the 
writer : — " Ah, you have read my letter, I see." " No, I have not," was the reply ; " I 
am come to ask you to read it to me." Janin good-humouredly and seriously held out 
his hand for the document, and said, " I will try." This anecdote reminds us of the 
well-known barrister, who wrote three distinct hands : one that he could read himself, 
and his clerk couldn't ; another that his clerk could read and he himself couldn't ; and 
the third one that neither he, nor his clerk, nor anybody else could read. 

A New Museusi. — The Athencewii has been informed that the Secretary of State for 
;, India in Council has granted the money required for building a new museum and library 
upon the vacant ground opposite the Indian Office. The sum is said to be somewhere 
about 75,000^. We earnestly hope that the " Secretary of State for India in Council," 
will cause this building to be opened to the public on Sundays — especially as there is 
to be a library attached to it. If the Secretary of State for India will do this, he will 
set an example that might stand a chance of being followed ; and, if followed, would 
doubtless be a great advantage ; and that circumstance of itself would have, among 
other charms — that of novelty ; for secretaries of state are not often chargeable with 
much attention to public requirements. 

A New Comedy. — Mr. Andrew Halliday and Mr. Albery are writing a new piece 
in collaboration. 

Remarkable Fact. — The sole novelty at the theatres this week is Mr, Dion 
Boucicault's new drama, "Led Astray," at the Gaiety. 

New Statue. — The first of the series of statues of distinguished statesmen which 
are to be placed in the pretty ornamental gardens known as Parliament-Square, opposite 
Palace-yard, is now nearly completed, and the full-sized figure in bronze of the late 
Lord Derby, the work of Mr. Noble, has been hoisted on the pedestal erected for it 
there. The Commissioner of Works, Lord H. Lennox, who granted the site, has paid 
several visits to it since the work was commenced, and it is understood that every exer- 
tion is to be made to get the monument finished and unveiled before the close of the 
Session. A statue of Lord Palmerston is to be erected in the adjoining garden. 

Gu&LiELMo. — The copyright of the late Signer G-uglielmo's popular song, "The Lover 
and the Bird," was oflered for sale by Messrs. Puttick and Simpson on Monday last, 
and after a spirited competition knocked down to Messrs. Ashdown and Parry for the 
large sum of £716. 

Opfenbach. — To succeed Madame Eartaux in the part of Eurydice in " Orphee," 
Ofienbach has just engaged Mdlle. Perier who created, at Baden, the role of the young 
Prince in the " Princesse de Trebizonde." Madame Judie, with the troupe of " Les 
Bouflfes Parisiennes," will appear at Le Theatre des Gralleries at Brussels on 1st August, 
when Off'enbach's last work, the " Bagatelle," will be produced. 

The father of Mdlle. Desclee, the late distinguished actress, has died within the last 
few days at Paris. He had formerly been a banker, but, haying failed and lost all his 
money, he took a subordinate position as clerk in an office, which he retained up to 
hia death.

l^nd MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 



No. 16,292. FKIDAY, July 10, 1S74. Price Id. 



A NEW MUSICAL SOCIETY. 

EoE many years/in another journal, we advocated the establishment of a Musical 

Society having for its object the protection and welfare of the members of the musical 

rofessiou. A new society is about to be established ; with what success has yet to be 

een. A contemporary thus announces the fact : "A want which has long been felt 

;imong musical men is in a fair way of being supplied by the formation of a society 

hich is to answer musically to the existing learned societies in connection with other 

Dranches of art and science. The study of the art and science of music is to be the aim 

;)f the body, which is to be confined to "the most eminent members of the profession, and 

;o amateurs who are famous as students in some special field of musical history or 

iterature. The society has begun well, for Dr. Stainer, the organist of St. Paul's 

thedral, is to be its secretary, and among the members already elected are Mr. G. A. 

(Macfarren, the composer ; Mr. John HuUah, the inspector of music in the (government 

,^:raining colleges ; Mr. George Grove, the ex-secretary of the Crystal Palace Company, 

t vhose editing of the programmes of the Saturday concerts, with their masterly critical 

nnnotations, has placed him at the head of English writers on the works of the great 

'inasters ; Mr. William Chappell, F.S.A., the learned musical antiquarian, whose ", Music 

i)f the Olden Time" is a standard authority on old English ballads; Dr. Pole, Mr. 

" Sedley Taylor, and Mr. Tyndall, who may be said to represent the scientific musicians 

)f the day. The researclies of a society headed by such men as these can scarcely fail 

/O prove a public benefit, and if their " transactions " are published they will furnish a 

)asis for an English musical literature which at present exists only in name." By way 

)f a caution, it ^vould be well, perhaps, to state our experience of the members of the 

I nusical profession : wo found when endeavouring to establish such a society that they 

phemselves were individually the stumbling-block to arriving at the end desired; we 

8 bund petty jealousies continually starting up ; every member thought his talents and 

* lis claims entitled him to a priority over his fellows. This caution, it will be said, amounts, 

•eally, to a charge of vanity against musical professors, and w^e confess it is 

- 1 charge we neither wish to withdraw nor modify. But this is not all — -not the only 

, lifficulty to be contended with, as some of the gentlemen above specified know, as well 

J IS we do — and we may mention the names both of Mr. Macfarren and Mr. HuUah 

J is having that knowledge — that musical professors, no less than clergymen, are as a rule 

I lot men of business. But if the musical profession will only elect competent officers, 

find be guided by their counsel, some hope of establishing a society of the kind desired 

^'nay be entertained, and if such a society be established, the good it will be to the 

'j )rofession can scarcely be estimated. 

, Balpe's New Opera in the Provinces. — It is said that " II Talismano " is to be 
)erformed in the provinces when Mr. Mapleson makes his next provincial tour. Mdlle. 

^Tietjens will take the part of Edith, now played by Miss Xilsson ; and to Mr. Bentham 

' vill be assigned the part of Sir Kenneth, the present role of Signer Campanini. The 
)art of Blondel, omitted in the opera, will be introduced into the drama, and the 
ninstrel will sing a piece composed by Balfe. 
Dickens in America. — When Dickens was last seen in America, giving readings, 

' lis agent unconsciously caused a deal of amusement by sending out some advertisements 
n these words : — "The reading will be comprised within two minutes, and the audience 
Lre earnestly entreated to be seated ten hours before its commencement." He had 
ransposed the minutes and the hours.

CRYSTAL PALACE. 

A SPLENDID display of fireworks was given at the Crystal Palace on Thursday evening, 
ince Messrs. Brock have undertaken to prove what miracles can be worked by the 
assessors of genius for the pyrotechnic art, the public have had an opportunity of wit- 
essing wonders which had never before been attempted — certainly never before 
thieved. Up to the time of the advent of the Messrs. Brock, the public were content 
> receive a certain amount of amusement from the display of aerial fireworks ; but it 

» is been left to the contractors of the Ci'ystal Palace to bring to perfection that which 
as up to that time a meaningless display of brilliancy, into something like form an 
der — into something having very much the appearance of art. Their " set pieces " are 
sally distinguished by much artistic ability, as, for instance, on Thursday, the architec- 
iral beauty of the Colosseum, with the wondrous luminous display which attended 
s exhibition, was, of itself, a perfect work of art. There were about eighteen thousand 
sitors there — a proof of the estimation in which this class of entertainment is held. 
!essrs. Brock announce themselves as " the sole Pyrotechnists to the Crystal Palace 
ompany, from 1865 to 1875" — so that we imagine their present contract will expire in 

;ae middle of next year. 
Shocking Death of "the Flying Man." — M. De Groof, an experimentalist, 
lown as " the Flying Man," was killed on Thursday evening in Robert-street, Chelsea. 
he balloon, with the parachute attached to it, ascended from Cremorne Gardens to a 
ight of about half-a-mile> and was gradually carried by the wind towards the Fulham- 
)ad. It then began to descend gently, and when near the ground De G-roof was seen 
anding up in the parachute. The balloon continued to fall, and when within abotit 
)0 feet of the ground, De Groof, fearing that the sudden descent of the car would 
ush him, cried out " For God's sake, cut the rope !" The balloonist complied with the 
iquest, and immediately the parachute was released it was seen to invert. De Groof 
11 to the ground, and was picked up dead. His body was taken to the Chelsea New 
ifirmary ; meanwhile a large crowd gathered, and the excitement in the neighbourhood 
as very great. The machine was carried through the streets by a crowd of roughs, 
ho conducted themselves in a most unseemly manner. The scene in the infirmary was 
mdered doubly painful from the fact that the wife of the unfortunate man was present, 
be surgeon stated that the skull was fractured, but to what extent can only be ascer- 
lined on a post-mortem examination. An investigation will be made into the circum- 

58 ances which led to the accident. This was the second ascent which the unfortunate 
jceased had made from Cremorne Gardens. "When this misguided andpresumptious 
ntleman first made the proposition to be detached from the balloon, we, having the 
evious fate of all parachutists in our recollection, protested against the insane and, as 
has proved, suicidal attempt to do that which, if successful, would have had not the 
ast beneficial efiect either upon science or the more ordinary pursuits of life. We felt 
ire that the experiment would fail ; and we believe, had it been fairly tried 
1 the first occasion, a similar result would have followed ; but on that 
jcasion the detachment of the machine, and the falling of the balloon, 
ere simultaneous, or nearly so — fatal consequences were therefore then 
jcessarily avoided. When will the public know better than to countenance such 
sanity ? It appears to us that the greater the apparent danger silly people encounter. 
le greater the attraction to a portion of the public who might perhaps find their morbid 
stes a little stimulated by a visit to the shambles of the New Cattle Market.

And MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 




EXAMINER OF STAGE PLAYS. 
No I. of a new and sensibly written publication, called " Figaro— Programme," made 
its appearance on Saturday, and we make the following extract from its columns : 
" As the husband is, the wife is," says Mr. Tennyson. So think many dramatic wives, 
and there has consequently been a hataille des dames for the post of Examiner of Stage- 
jiplays. Mr. Alfred Wigan, who is in sad health, quite unfit for work, obliged to go 
J abroad several times a year, and utterly unable to undergo the fatigue of playgoing, wants 
lithe valuable post for Mrs. Alfred Wigan, who is friends with all the Duchesses and 
I Marchionesses of the United Kingdom. Mr. Tom Taylor, who is editor of Fundi, art- 
j critic of the 2^;«e5, playwright and critic, and a G-overnment pensioner to the tune of 
' 800 a year demands the post for Mrs. Tom Taylor, who writes sweet songs for infants. 
Ir. Theodore Martin, one of the authors ot the " Bon Gualtier " ballads, insists upon 
aving the appointment for his wife, Helen Faucit, and as the Theodore Martins are 
onstant visitors on the Queen, it is most probable that Helen Faucit will be appointed. 
r. Westland Marston, who is a widower, and Mr. Palgrave Simpson, who is a bachelor, 
out of the running altogether. The stage will benefit by the appointment 
'of female censors. Zes femmes ! Les femmes ! il n'y a que ca,'" 

Why Dr. Westland Marston should be " out of the running," we cannot 
tell. We sincerely hope that Mr. Tom Taylor, whose pension as above is a 
little over-stated, and whose appetite for pension and place, ought now to 
be entirely satiated — we sincerely hope Mr. Taylor's " demand " may be 
postively ignored ; if there be any difference of opinion in the matter, and Dr. 
Marstou's claims are put aside, then of all the other candidates, we think Mrs. Martin 
(Miss Helen Faucit) " should be the selected one. But we support most decidedly 
;he appointment of Dr. Marston. We doubt very much that any benefit of any kind 
ivill be derived from the appointment of female censors of the stage. 

Philhaemonic Theatre. — A testimonial — a silver epergne, supported by the graces, 
—has just been presented to Mr. Charles Head. The presentation was made by Mr. 
R. Shepherd, the manager. In concluding his speech of thanks, Mr. Head said : 
Uthough the Theatre is about to pass into the hands of a company I shall still retain 
I large interest in it (cheers) ; and in the entertainments we shall give we shall court 
rour criticism, and, I hope, command your praise. We have secured the exclusive right of 
' Girofle-Girofla." If we succeed I know we shall deserve it ; if we fail we shall 
)ut be inspired to renewed energy. The curtain is about to fall on a long and successful 
reason, and I cannot forget how much is due to our clever and hard-working artists. 
From the highest to the lowest I offer them my sincere thanks. 

Theateical Chaf&es. — We copy the following paragraph from the Era : — Mr. 
Dhippendale and Mr. Compton will join Mr. Bateman's company at the Lyceum next 
leason, when " Hamlet " will be represented with a strong cast and elaborate scenic 
iccessories. Mr. Henry Irving will be the Prince of Denmark, Mr. John Clayton the 
Song, Mr. Chippendale Polonius, and Mr. Compton First Gravedigger. 

Close of the Season. — The benefit nights of all ttie principal artists are now 
mnounced — symptoms of the close of the London season : amongst the rest, that of Mb. 
lilAPLESON will doubtless command great attention : the spirit and energy with which 
16 has carried on the management of Drury-lane, deserves especial recognition. 

Miss Henrietta Hodsoi^ announces her benefit for Friday next, at the Royalty, 
M^r. Benjamin Webster and Mrs. John Wood have consented to appear.

No. 16,295. TUESDAY, July 14, 1874. Price Id. 



"THE FLYING MAN" AND HIS FATE. 

On Saturday, the inquest on the body of the late Vincent de Groof, better known aa 
" The -Plying Man," waa opened in the board-room of the Chelsea Workhouse. The 
principal witness was Mr. Joseph Simmons, who gave an elaborate description^ of the 
mode of working the machine by which the deceased lost his life, and detailed the 
incidents of the fatal descent. Some other evidence having been called, the inquiry; was 
adjourned. At the end of Mr. Simmons' evidence, the foreman asked the witness if he 
had seen De G-roof since the accident. He replied — "I have." The foreman then 
requested to be informed if he were dead. Being answered in the affermative, he asked 
the witness : " Are you quite sure of that ?" What could this gentleman want more 
than to know that the poor man who had a fissure in his skull in which a finger might 
be laid — what more could he want to prove that the poor man was " hopelessly dead?" — 
or, did he suppose that somebody had personated De Groof, and that they had before 
them the martyred form of an impostor, who had taken upon himself 
to personate " the flying man," and that the original De Groof would yet be forth- 
coming ! The same gentleman suggested the necessity of a post-mortem, as the man 
might have died of heart disease. This proposition was of course unanimously negatived 
by the jury. The effect of this accident ought to be, that there should be some stop 
put to the foolhardiness of those who have little care for their own lives, and none 
whatever for the feelings of the more sensible part of the public. 

Mr. and Mes. Eousbt. — The seizure of Mr. and Mrs. JJousby's wardrobe to satisfy 
a claim on the part of a jeweller was the subject of an action tried at the Warwick 
Assizes on Saturday. It was proved that the wardrobe was the property of a gentleman 
who had engaged Mr. and Mrs. Eousby for a provincial tour, and on the sale and pur- 
chase being proved a genuine transaction, a verdict was given in his favour. 

Mdme. Otto-Altsleben has left London and returned to Dresden. She is expected 
to re-visit this country in October, and is engaged for the Leeds Festival. 

Mdme. Jfles Janin has presented her late husband's library to the French 
Academy on condition that it shall be placed in a room to be named after him. 

Yeedi's New Requiem. — Mr. Gye will produce Verdi's new " Eequiem " at Covent 
Garden at the close of the season, with Madame Vilda, Mdlle. d'Angeri, and Signer 
Marini as soloists. 

Madame Nilsson. — The engagement of Madame Nilsson in Eussia has been signed 
for two months instead of four. She will sing at St. Petersburg and Moscow from October 
20 to December 20, and immediately after will go to Paris. Madame Nilsson is to 
receive 112,000 francs in gold for sixteen performances.

he will be supported by a large number of popular artistes.

l^nd MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY, 



No. 16,296. WEDNESDAY, July 15, 1874. Price Id. 



OPERA COMIQUE. 

We were at the Opera Comique on Monday evening. The performance of Lecocq's 
)pera, G-irofle-G-irofla has received a previous notice from us. What struck us more 
)articularly on the occasion of which we write was, the admirable performance of the 
joncerted pieces — the septet, which forms the finale to the first act was sung with the 
greatest precision and effect ; and the quintet, which we think occurs in the middle of 
;he second act, confirmed our impression ; the acting also was excellent. As solo singers 
here was nothing particularly striking in the performance : the best singer is Pauline 
luigini ; her voice is a soprano, and with a register as high as she is capable of reaching, 
t is something extraordinary that she never sings sharp. Persiani, perhaps the very 
)est representative of the high soprano cla'33 of our time, sang occasionally painfully out 
)f tune ; but to the qualifications we have named, Mdlle. Luigini, adds an educated 
aethod and a considerable amount of vocal skill and great certainty of intonation , 
Sliario-Widmer who is a very good actor, and a capital tenor to look at, has a voice of a 
•ather unsympathetic kind, continually using his falsetto to reach a moderately high 
lote — yet his performance is very satisfactory, and so is that of Madame Delorme, 
IS Aurore. Alfred Jolly, as Bolero, was simply admirable — both in singing and acting. 
i most pleasant evening may be passed at the Opera Comique. 

Death op Miss Steickland. — Miss Agnes Strickland died Monday morning at 
Southwold, a little watering-place on the coast of Suff'olk. The deceased, who was in 
ler 79th year, was a native of that county — her father being Mr. Strickland, of Eeydon 
lall. That gentleman had three daughters, all of whom possessed considerable literary 
ibility. Agnes, the third daughter, showed at a very early age some capacity for 
Doetical composition, but this was repressed by her father, at whose death she and her 
lister Elizabeth turned their attention to historical studies, which fitted them to prepare 
hose biographical works that have made the name of Strickland famous for more than 
hirty years past. Agnes Strickland alone wrote a great many small books, and was a 
sequent contributor to magazines. Together with her sister she wrote " The Lives of 
he Queens of England," and a companion work on the Queens of Scotland, which 
)ecame, and mil long continue to be, very popular in all countries where the English 
anguage is spoken. The name of the one sister only appeared on the title pages of 
hese works, Elizabeth having declined to publicly take credit for her share in the under- 
lakings. [To this we may add our own personal knowledge of the retiring and womanly 
lature of Elizabeth Strickland, to whose patience and research the readers of " The 
Queens of England " are indebted for the accuracy of dates and other circumstances 
vhich distinguish the work, and render it a valuable historical treasure. Everything 
ontained in the numerous volumes of " The Queens of England" has been fully verified 
Defore printing, by documents which were patiently and laboriously sought by the elder 
jister, who had nearly, if not quite, as much to do with the histories to which we have 
eferred as Agnes Strickland had herself. This fact has come under our own personal 
Dbservation. The unostentatious spirit displayed by both these clever ladies renders 
;heir career something pleasant to reflect and dwell upon. The third sister, 
Mrs. Moodie, emigrated to Canada ; having previously acquired some fame as a writer 
jf fiction— Ed.T.O.] 

Eeench Plats. — Peincess's Theatee. — Two benefits are being organised for Eriday 
md Saturday by the leading members of the company, some of whom are in a very 
needful state, their salaries not having been paid for the last six weeks. Several well- 
known English artists have kindly promised their assistance.

Lnd MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 




No. 16,297. THURSDAY, July 16, 1874. Price Id. 



NOTICES OF NEW MUSICAL PUBLICATIONS. 

The Ballad Singer ; Ha^tdel's March in Scipio ; and Buonaparte's Grand 

Iarch. Three pianoforte pieces by Brinley Eichards. (Published by Joseph Williams, 

Jerners Street). There can be no more gratifying circumstance happen to a reviewer 

ban that of being in a position honestly and fairly to praise the works submitted to his 

idgment. For years, it has been our duty to offer our tribute of commendation to the 

rorks of Mr. Brinley Eichards, who, taking a high position in the musical art at an 

arly age, has continued to pursue his career with honour to him-^elf and with benefit to 

'he profession which he so honourably represents. As a sound and clever musician, Mr. 

Jrinley Eichards has very few superiors, and yet to such real musical knowledge he adds 

tact and a feeling for his art that never fail to make his works acceptable to the public, 

^hile they must always receive a welcome from the professional teachers to whom his 

ianoforte works are so acceptable and so useful. With these remarks we have little to 

■ijo, beyond introducing the above works to the public, with a recommendation that they 

'i hemselves will justify — they are clever and interesting, and popular in their character. 

'here is in them a graceful elevation of thought and a very effective variety, combined 

" ith a moderate degree of difficulty in their performance. Mr. Eichards has strongly 

[ Maintained his earlier characteristics — that of combining interesting effect with ease 

nd grace of accomplishment. Nothing can be more useful to young students of the 

ianoforte than such compositions as these : we recommend them to the attention of 

msical instructors, as being calculated to display the proficiency of their pupils without 

icurring the necessity of too much labour. They cannot fail to give the most 

omplete satisfaction to all musical connoisseurs and students. We give them a cordial 

elcome and a candid recommendation. 

Evenings with the best Composers. Book XIII. (Brewer, Bishopsgate Street, 

Vithin.) Two or three months ago we had before us for notice Books XII and XIII 
- f this series. We then pointed out the great advantages which such publications confer 

less on the professed musician than on the less advanced amateur and musical student. 
' a the present instance, we have only to add our praise to that which was so well earned 
^ efore. This book forms the first of two, and is Eossini's Stabat Mater, arranged for 
' ianoforte, by Edward Travis. The work of arrangement could hardly have fallen into 
i, Btter hands : it is done with musicianly skill and it exhibits unaffected good taste, as 
U ell as sound judgment. The publication of such works as these, got up at a price 
"i lat does not exceed an ordinary song or other vocal piece, confers a boon alike upon 
*' le professor and the public. The first division of this Book contains, No. 1 Intro- 

iiction ; 2 " Cujus animam ;" 3 " Quis est homo •"4i '* Pro peccatis ;" and, 5 " Eia Mater " 
' lese pieces occupy twenty four nicely- printed pages, with a frontispiece containing 
, jrtraits of Eossini, Meyerbeer, Cherubini, Spohr, Gliick, and Bach ; the price is only 
jj tree shillings — a perfect wonder in musical publications. As our musical readers are 
jiJubtless well acquainted with the score of "The Stabat Mater," we have only to say 

lat Mr. Travis has exhibited the greatest skill in his arrangement of the pieces which 

irm the first book. 



A Birdie's Life. Composed by A. H. D. Prendergast (Joseph Williams). A very 
tractive melody, and a simple and effective accompaniment. The composer has not 
Jen happy in the choice of the poem he has selected to illustrate ; for really his melody 
sserves a better subject. The song will, however, be welcomed in the drawing-room, 
iing within the compass of any singer who has any pretensions to voice at all.

If 



e t^litiitncal #berkr; 




No. 16,298. FRIDAY, July 17, 1874. Price Id. 

MozAET Pestital. — This grand assemblage of musical talent took place at the 
loyal Italian Opera last night. The programme consisted wholly of Mozart's music, and 
he performers embraced the whole strength of the Covent G-ardeu Company, under the 
irectiou of Sir Jules Benedict, Signori Vianesi and Beviguani. The finale, in which 
he whole of the artists who gave their assistance took part, was "Vive la liberta," 
rom Griovanni : such an array of artistic talent has not often been associated. 
]he object of the festival is to increase the funds of the Mozart institution, established 
,t the birthplace of the composer at Salzburg, in Austria . 

Hatmaeket Theatee. — The last week but two of the season is announced, at this 
heatre. Mr. Buckstone's benefit will take place on the 3rd of August, when in addition 
the new comedy by Mr. Buchanan, Mr. Sims Reeves will sing two new songs, and 
iv. Buckstone will deliver, as usual, an address. 

Peintees' Pension Asylum. — The anniversary festival in aid of the funds of this 
harity was celebrated on AVednesday evening at the London Tavern, under the 
(residency of Mr. Walter, M.P. There was a numerous attendance. The chairman 
iroposed " Prosperity to the Printers' Pension, Almhouse, and Orphan Asylum 
!/orporatioD." In the course of a powerful and eloquent appeal on behalf of the 
Qstitution, he observed that the charity which they had met that evening to do honour 
o was one which deserved the hearty support of printers and also of the public, who 
wed a debt of gratitude to the printing profession for the intellectual treats that they 
irere instrumental in placing before the world. The object of the society, which had 
everal branches, partly in the character of pensions and partly in the chai-acter of alms- 
louses and other benevolent arrangements, was to provide, in old age and sickness, for 
he support of decayed members of the printing trade. After a few other remarks from 
he chairman, the toast was drunk with the utmost enthusiasm. The subscriptions 
.mounted to about 900^., including donations of lOOZ. each from the chairman and 
ilrs. Holms. 

SiGNOE Beognoli, the eminent tenor, who recently had so much success in Paris, and 
^ho is a great favourite in America, has been engaged by Mr. Maplesou for the autumn 
ampaign of his company. 

Public Singees. — A medical man cites a number of cases in which borax has proved 

most effective remedy in certain forms of colds. He states that in sudden hoarseness 
r loss of voice of public speakers or singers, from colds, relief for an hour or so, as by 
aagic, may often be obtained by slowly dissolving and partially swallowing a lump ot 
loras, the size of a garden pea, or about three or four grains held in the mouth for ten 
ainutes before speakiug or singing. This produces a profuse secretion of saliva, or 
■ watering of the mouth and throat, probably restoring the voice or tone to the dried 
'ocal cords, just as wetting brings back the missing notes to a flute when it is too dry." 
This is a very simple and harmless remedy, and vocalists will do well to profit by the 
i) ,dvice thus given. 

it( Since Drury Lane has not been found unavailable, M. Eiviere will not attempt 
'romenade Concerts on his own account this season. There is a talk of his taking the 
ionductorship of the Philharmonic Theatre, on the forthcoming production of " Girofle- 
'3-irofla." 

Depaetuee oe Me. J. L. Toole for Ameeica. — Yesterday Mr. J. L. Toole, 
iccompanied by his family and several artists engaged to support him, sailed from Liver- 
)ool in the White Star steamer Eepublic for jS"ew York. Mr. Toole was accompanied 
;o the steamer by numerous professional and social friends.

THE MOZART FESTIVAL. 

On Thursday a special performance was given, under the title of a " Mozart Festiiral," 
Nith. the object of aiding the funds of the Mozart Institution at Salzburg (the birth- 
jlaee of the great composer), to which students of any nationality are eligible for 
idmission and instruction in the art and science of music at a cost that is little more 
;han nominal. Musical entertainments in furtherance of the scheme have been arranged 
;o take place in various parts of Europe ; the concert of Thursday having originated in 
yiadame Adelina Patti's generous offer of her valuable services, responded to by Mr. 
3-ye'3 co-operation and that of the members of his establishment. Mozart was born in 
L756 and died in 1791, being only thirty-lave years old, and short as his career was, his 
vorks are so marvellously numerous, mostly so important in extent, and of such infinite 
variety, that no single programme could give anything like a representation 
)f the capacity and versatility of his genius. Thursday's selection, however, 
)fFered perhaps an illustration of the great composer as could be compressed into 
me occasion. Most of the pieces were familiar to opera and concert audiences, 
md the performers associated therewith are likewise well known, the programme 
laving comprised the names of Mesdames Adelina Patti, Sinico, Vilda, Saar, and 
Dell'Aneso ; Mdlles. Albani, Marimon, Scalchi, D'Angeri, Schmeroschi, Pezzotta, Calasch^. 
3ianchi, Cottino, Ghiotti, Corsi ; Signori Nicolini, Bettini, Pavaui, Marini, Piazza Bolis, 
^abater, Manfredi, Rossi, Fame, G-raziani, Maurel, Bagagiolo, Capponi, Ciampi, Raguer, 
md Fallar — an apology having been made for Signer Cotogni on account of illness. 
Che vocal music consisted of selections from the operas of " Idomeneo," " Le Nozze di 
igaro," " Don Giovanni," " Clemenza di Tito," " Cosi fan Tutte," "II Seraglio," and 
' II Plauto Magico," and the choral Gloria from the Twelfth Mass — all which pieces 
vere given with great effect. The fine orchestra of the establishment played the over- 
iures to " Clemenza di Tito " and " II Seraglio," and the symphony in E_ flat ; other 
nstrumental pieces having been two movements of the pianoforte quartet in G minor, 
vith Mdlle. Krebs as pianist, and the stringed parts by Messrs. Carrodus, Burnett, and 
^. Howell ; the two first-named artists having been associated in the variations from the 
sonata in F for piano and violin. Signori Vianesi and Bevignani, and Sir J. Benedict, 
-vere the conductors. There was a full and brilliant audience — ^indeed, the lin« of waiting 
carriages extended to Trafalgar Square. The performance, both artistically and tinan- 
jially, was completely successful. 

The Late Me. Shielet Beookes. — The Ura says : — " A large and fashionable 
ludience assembled at St. George's Hall, Langbam- place, on the evening of Saturday, 
;he 11th inst., when some well-known amateurs gave a dramatic performance for the 
jenefit of the widow of the late Mr. Shirley Brookes. The programme comprised " A 
Sheep in Wolf 's Clothing " and "The Bengal Tiger," the acting was generally good. 
Mr. Brandram's impersonation of Jasper Carew was very fine — one of the best pieces 
)f acting of its kind to be seen on the stage. Thanks to the energy of Mr. Hardman, 
s^ho kindly acted as honorary secretary, a considerable amount will be handed over to 
Mrs. Shirley Brookes. There were very few representatives of literature or journalism 
Dresent." There must be something in Art the possession of which prevents men from 
naking provision for the future. With all the advantages enjoyed by men of letters, 
low seldom is it found that they have made themselves and their families secure against 
reverses of fortune ! 

Miss Helen Andeeson, (daughter of the late Wizard of the North), will appear ecu 
the 1st of August at the Eoyal Pavilion^ Brighton.

ind MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 



No. 16,301. TUESDAY, July Si, 1874. Price Id. 

EoTAL Italian Opeea. — The season closed on Saturday night with Meyerbeer's? 

L'Etoile du Nord." During the season just concluded, the additions to the repertoire 

f the theatre have been Verdi's " Luisa Miller " and Ambroise Thomas' "Miguou;" 

et neither of these works is new to Eugland. Of the two, we greatly prefer the latter ; 

■m ecause the former depends upon the singing and acting of Madame Patti. The 

allowing operas have been performed : " II Mauto Magico " and " Don Griovanni," by 

:,)« iozart ; " Les Huguenots," " Diuorah," "L'Etoile du Word," " Eoberto il Diavolo '' 

Sij nd " L'Africaine," by Meyerbeer ; " II Barbiere di Siviglia " and " Gruglielmo Tell," by 

fi« lossini ; " Faust," by M. Gounod ; " La Sounambula," " I Puritani," and " Norma," by 

^S Jellini ; " Lucia di Lammermoor," " Lucrezia Borgia," " La Favorita," " La Figlia del 

rji leggimento," and " Linda di Cbamounix," by Donizetti ; " Der Freischutz," by Weber; 

Marta," by Flotow, " Les Diamaus de la Couroune," by Auber ; " II Trovatore," 

La Traviata," " II Ballo in Maschera," "Eigoletto," " Eruani," and " Luisa Miller," 

ty Vei'di ; " Hamlet " and "Miguon," by Thomas ; " Crispino e la Comare," by the 

" irothers Eicci ; and " II Q-uarany," by Signer Gomez. Operas by Mozart, 2 ; Meyer- 

/pieer, 5; Eossini, 2; Gounod, 1 ; Bellini, 3 ; Donizetti, 5 ; "Weber, 1; Flotow, i; 

*Luber, 1 ; Verdi, 6; Thomas, 2 ; Eicci, 1; and Gomez, 1. The works of Meyerbeer 

_ lave been placed upon the stage with a maguiliceuce that few houses in Europe can hope 

rival, and altogether the season of 1874 has fulfilled the promise held forth by the 

I, I aanager at the commencement. The Prince and Princess of Wales and the Grand 

j3uke of Macklenberg-Strelitz were present at the last performance of the season. 

i The Eotal. — The programme at this establishment, although not of its usual 

jigantic character, contains quite sufficient for those that wish to pass a quiet and agree- 

'° Lble evening. Mr. Pat Corri still delights us with his artistic rendering of the songs, 

" ' Oft in the stilly night," and "The Village Blacksmith." Amongst the company 

33, mgaged we find the names of Miss Ada Clarisse and Miss Minnie Gough, two serio- 

Tn 'omiques. The Brothers Eaynoi', who appeared in a sketch from " II Trovatore," and 

proved they could have done great things if the theatrical managers had not interdicted 

-liny resemblance to a stage-play being produced in a music-hall ; Laurie and Power's 

!omic company. Those very clever children, Elspa and Sillo, in the marvellous per- 

brmance on the flying trapeze ; Mr. Lorenzo comes from the provinces and displays 

!ome talent in the nigger line ; but if this gentleman ever hopes to come to the front, 

le must have better command over his temper, for on the evening of our visit, whilst he 

yas delivering a stump-speech, with the usual clap-trap bits, in praise of the honeut 

IS' vorking man, and in condemnation of our " bloated aristocracy," some persons in the 

lall did not approve of the author's ideas on the subject, and very naturally showed 

heir displeasure, not at the performer, but at the sentiments he uttered, upon which 

Mr. Lorenzo took umbrage, and most imprudently addressed them in rather strong 

anguage, concluding by saying that he had had enough of London, and should return 

;o the provinces. We have no fear but that London will be able to get on without him. 

People frequent places of entertainment to be amused and not to be bullied. The great 

A attraction of the evening was certainly Mr. Henri Clark ; this gentleman is unsurpassed 

la an actor and singer on the music hall stage. Everything he does shows the true 

irtist. If only to hear him sing his " Frenchman " it would amply repay a visit. The 

3xcellent band, under the direction of Mr. P. W. Halton, played the most popular selec- 

rt bions during the evening, amongst others the Whirlwind Polka, with the cornet solo by 

Mr. Kimble, which received a cordial encore. 

Mb. Joseph Eobins. — This well-known comedian has been engaged by Mr. Chatter- 
on for his forthcoming season at the Theatre Eoyal Drury-lane.

CREMORNE GARDENS. 
The tropical weather of the last few weeks has added greatly to the number of visitorg 
these delightful gardens, which are now in all their summer grandeur, and they can 

^ easily reached by a pleasant drive along the Chelsea Embankment. The variety of 

tractions which Mr. Baum now offers to his patrons is well worthy of their support. 
Vhat is more enjoyable after a good dinner than to set beneath the shade of a fine old 
■^ee, with an American sling, a fragrant cigar, and quietly listen to a promenade concert, 
f ven by some sixty or seventy first-rate artists, conducted by Mons. E. Audibert, and 
t jrforming the music of our best composers. Or, should we prefer to gaze upon the 
•I jauties of the fair sex, we can adjourn to the Theatre Eoyal, and witness a charming 
ai vertissement, and also a grand ballet, entitled " Marguerite La Bouquetiere," in which 
'He celebrated Mdlle. Pertoldi appears, supported by M. Emile .Tosset, Mdlles. Eosa, 
-^ nna Kate, and by eighty Ballerines. In the Marionette Theatre the laughable farce 
1 ■ " Turn Him Out " is being played, with Mr. Walter Vernon as Nicodemus Nobbs ; 
I id in the Bijou Theatre are to be found Mr. James Doughty's clever dogs. At half- 
iist, ten Mr." Wells provides a brilliant display of fireworks, and then we can wander 

trough illuminated groves. "We can sup a la carte ; we can imbibe the choicest wines ; 
-e can prove our skill with the rifle or bowl ; we can try our 
.1 eight or our strength. In fact, we can do everything except dance; for, strange to say, 
Urpsichore is banished from this fairyland. How she has disffmced herself must ever 

;main a mystery. Does she behave better on the Continent ? We presume she does ; 

ir there is not a public garden in any city in Europe where dancing is not allowed. 

ow, it seems very hard that the dwellers in our great metropolis should be thrust into 
! heated ball-room, or forced to migrate to St. Helena, North Woolwich, or Rosherviile 
1 3fore they can enjoy their saltatory amusement. What harm can there be in dancing ? 
Di he Shakers make it part of their religious ceremonies ! We do trust that under a 
iponservative government, England will be allowed to keep up some of its good old 

istoms. It is a difficult thing for a proprietor of a public garden to be able to make 
-.oney at the end of the season. The weather is most treacherous in this country, and 
( wet night signifies a severe loss. Were dancing to be allowed, people would amuse 
[ lemselves, and also amuse those who look on, which is a great saving to a proprietor's 
r jcket ; for he is not required to lay out large sums of money in procuring sensations, 
n order to entice people to his gardens. Mr. King, the acting manager, is worthy of 
Bi rery commendation for the manner in which he superintends the general arrangements 
^?f the gardens. 

^ Miss Helen Anderson, the only daughter of the late " Wizard of the Nortu," 
ti(ppears to inherit the ability of her father, being considered to be the most accomphshed 

rofessor of the magic art, now before the public. She is about to make a very extended 

jur, visiting many foreign countries : her first step will be to visit the principal pro- 
j3 incial towns of England, and in accordance with this design she will commence her 
I erformances at Brighton, on Saturday, August 1st, at the Eoyal Pavilion. We 
a ordially wish success to Miss Helen Anderson. 

Miss Ada Catendish announces her benefit for Friday next, at the Olympic Theatre, 
, rhen, in addition to the part of Lady Clancarty, she will sustain the character of 

iady Teazle. 
a. Me. D. Bbyant is now in England, and is, with his family, a guest of Mr. Gr. W. 

loore. Llias Bella Moore (Mrs. J". Yokes) has also returned from America,

DRURY-LANE THEATRE PROPRIETORS. 
A GENERAL assembly of the proprietors of Drury-lane Theatre was held on Saturday 
I the saloon of the theatre, Mr. Ardent in the chair. The report of the committee to 
. le general assembly, which was read by Mr. Fladgate, the secretary, stated that the 
3counts ending 30th June had been audited by Mr. Eicketts and Mr. Crombie, and 
lowed the gross receipts, including the balance of £1527 Gs. 5d., on the 30th June, 
873, to be, £12,743 Oa. 9d. The total of the payments amounted to £10,158 J 6s. 2d., 
lo laving a net balance at the bankers' of £2,584 4s. 7d. The receipts comprised £425 
ei aid by the lessee in settlement and discharge of repairs under the covenants of his 
' )rmer lease, £295 for 59 extra performances in 1872-3, £650 for the extension of the 
issee's term to the 15th of August, 1873, and £6,500 rent for the year ending the 
8th of August, 1874. The payments comprised £1372 8s. Id. for four quarters' rent 
) the Duke of Bedford, £632 lis. 7d. for rates and taxes, £198 12s. 5d. on account of 
iifre mains, £148 16s. for upholstery, £335 12s. for builders, £526 14s. for decorations, 
ad £2675 to the trustees of the new renters. Eeferring to his report of last year, the 
rchitect said with regard to the precautions taken to ensure the safety of the theatre 
gainst fire, he stated that in addition to the former mains, contracts were entered into 
y the sub-committee last autumn with the New Eiver Company for a separate high 
jrvice main, for the exclusive use of the theatre on the northern frontage, and with 
lessrs. May, engineers, for one of the proposed upright mains from the water company's 
ew main in the street through the interior of the theatre to the roof, with connexions 
n the several floors ; the result had been most satisfactory. At all times of the day and 
ight a stream of water could be thrown over the cowl on the highest point of the roof 
ir y the firemen on duty, and without assistance. Mr. Holmes, Lord W. Lennox, Sir H. 
»''. De Bathe, Mr, J. C. O'Dowd, Mr. JohnEeddish, and Mr. Edward Vaughan Eichards 
I; 'ere elected the committee, and Messrs. Ardent, Eawlinson, Barlow, and O'Dowd the 
lb-committee. Messrs. Eicketts and Crombie were elected auditors, and after votes of 
lanks had been passed to Mr. Chatterton, Mr. Mapleson, and the chairman, the pro- 
_eedings terminated. 
MoDEEN" Deamatig Moeals. — Under Elizabeth and James we have the talk of Holy- 
ell- street uttered by players of the male sex alone, for the appearance of women upon 
4e stage was unknown ; under Yictoria we haee the most highly improving sentiments 
,■ sped by women in men's clothing, supported by clouds of ballet dancers, who, whether 
ley are dressed in male or female clothing, are invariably girls. What a marvellous 
bange in the notions of society as to what is moral ! And what a honeycombing of 
t'';epticism does it not betray in our modern world as to the standard of right 
nd wrong. 
Peomenade Conceets. — The promenade concerts at Covent Grarden, which were so 
iiccessful last year, will be resumed about the middle of August, and be continued for a

NOTICES OF NEW MUSICAL PUBLICATIONS. 
Don Q-iovanni ; Marta ; Lohengrin ; Two pieces for the pianoforte. By Harold 
lomaa. (Published by J. Williams, Berners Street.) These are separate publications ; 
e first is an arrangement of some of the principal airs in the noble work above-named, 
'ell may the arranger call his collection, " a bouquet of melodies ;" the introduction 



Da 



nd MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 



the lovely tenor air " II mio tesoro," amongst the rest will give great satisfaction. 

le arrangement of these pieces proves Mr. Thomas' claims to rank amongst the really 

jll-educated and practicable musicians ; he opens his work with an introduction, andante 

race ; followed by " La ci darem " (andante con express.) Serenade (allegretto) ; 

!;[1 mio tesoro " (andante cantabile ;) and winds up with the " Aria Buffa," (presto),— 

.n most appropriate judicious and telling selection. It is altogether a showy and 

;- trinsically good pianoforte piece — the themes being those of which we never tire, and 

eir treatment admitting of no improvement. The second on our list is a brilliant 

.brilliant, in the best sense of the term) fantasia on Elotow's opera, 

i^yCarta," introducing some of the principal airs, which are arranged for the 

jtrument in a very effective and showy manner with some good work for 

e left hand. The subject of the " andante cantabile " is the air, " M'Appari," and if 

be played with only a moderate amount of skill, and the composer's intentions faith- 

lly followed, it will be found very effective in performance. The " Wedding Music " 

Wagner's opera " Lohengrin," here provides a very clever arrangement for the 

anoforte ; the " Procession " and the " Bridal Chorus " are capitally treated. To 

anists who are moderately proficient these pieces are almost invaluable. 

The Two Tides.— Song. Composed by Henry Smark. (J. Williams, Berners 
reet). This is a love-song which a fisher-boy sings to his sweetheart : 

" Two Tides flow up to Alice's home," 

The fisher-boy singa as he leaves the bay, 
One, twice a day with the salt sea foam, 

The other flows up from my heart all day." 

16 " verse," as it is called upon the title-page (by Frederick Enoch) has a good deal of 
-")etic merit about it, and is altogether free from common-place thoughts. There is a 

jculiarity, if not an originality about some of the lines : a little rugged now and then in 
„e e rhythm ; but upon the whole much above the average of modern song- writing. The 
,jusic is that of a true musician, whose name is well known in works of much higher 
,' 'etensions than " The Two Tides ;" yet in this song, which is written in the key of A 
Jit — extending in compass from E major to F— Mr. Smart has asserted his ability to 
/ite for popular as well as educated taste, and he has admirably succeeded. The " Two 
ill ides," will doubtless become a favourite wherever introduced. 



1. Sparkling in the Sttmmeb Sun. 2. The Spirit op the Sunbeam. — Composed 
r W.F.Taylor. (Joseph Williams, Berner-street). No. 1. Neither words nor musie 

ojis much to recommend it, if we omit an ultra kind of simplicity that places the accom- 
ishment of the song within the reach of every one with a voice. It is in the key of Gi- 
ld its range is from D below to E. The second is considerably better ; the music 
pecially. The words, in either case, are not calculated to produce much inspiration iu 
.eir musical illustration. The best recommendation we can give them is their easiness 
accomplishment and simplicity of character. *' The Spirit of the Sunbeam " is a 

la lirit of which we have not heard ; but the composer seems to have caught the spirit, and 
vested it with a pretty and tuneful melody.

Ind MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 



No. 16,305. SATURDAY, July 95, 1874. Price Id. 

Hatmabket Theatre. — The lasteigbt nights of the season are announced at this the- 
re. Mr. Buckstone's benefit will take place on Monday week, when the new comedy by 
'r. Buchanan will be produced ; and in addition to Mr. Buckstone's usual address, Mr. 
ms Eeeves has volunteered to sing two new songs. Mr. Buckstone's claims upon the 
iblic — -independently of his great ability as an actor — need scarcely be advocated ; yet 
cannot forbear from wishing him success on the occasion, and we do so most 
fiijjrdially. 
Closing, ats"d Opening, op Theatres. — The following theatres will have terminated 
leir seasons in a few days : — Haymarket, Olympic, Queen's, St. .Tames's, Prince of 
rei'^ales's, Court, Royalty, and Opera Comique ; the only theatres remaining open will be 
aiie Adelphj, Gaiety, Strand, Vaudeville, and Standard. The Lyceum will open with 
;iss Emily Soldene ill " The Q-rand Duchess " on the 1st of next month. Drurt- 
^XSE will commence its winter season on the 29th of August, with a really powerful 
jj>mpany — including Mr. Anderson, Mr. Cresvvick, and Miss Wallis. 
iti The New Aquarium Company. — Of course our readers have heard of the suggestion 
ai T establishing an aquarium and winter garden in London. The project, at present, 
lems well supported by a collection of earls, doctors, actors, generals, authors, and 
-•inces. We are afraid the great support the project will receive will overpower it. 
. Tho is to manage it ? Well, let us give a practical hint. Let it be managed as at 
' righton by one intelligent man — not by members of a body who have each different 
3tious of the same thing. Eind a good and intelligent man, and give him unlimited 
Dvver. This is our advice Messieurs " The Fellows " of the projected aquarium and 
^^ inter garden : take it, and prosper — refuse it, and perish! These are our sentiments, 
.jhich we beg leave, with all humility, to add to our advice. 

ii The Promenade Concerts at Covent G-arden, wiiich were so highly successful last 
Bjar, will be resumed on the 8th of August, and be continued for a longer period than 
'hual. M. Herve is engaged as conductor, and will be assisted in his important duties 
p" Mr. Bettjman. The decoration will be more elaborate than ever, and the whole of 
"le stage will be utilised as a portion of the promenade. Mr. John Russell is to be the 
I anager : the management could not have fallen into better hands. 
ei The last op "The Flying Man." — The inquest on De Q-roof, which had been from 
a me to time adjourned, came to a conclusion on Wednesday, when the jury returned 
Jie following verdict: " That the deceased Vincent de Groof, came by his death, on 
le 9th July, from the effects of an accidental fall, and were of opinion that the 
J creasing frequency of exhibitions in which loss of life might probably result called 
1 r the attention of the legislature, and that on this occassion no blame whatever could 
ii) attached to the proprietor of Cremorne Gardens." It appears that on the first 
icent, the machine, as we suggested at the time, was never detached from the balloon 
1 all, and that the rope which connected it was not loosened until after the decent of 
hie balloon and machine together. The getting loose, on the second occassion, was an 
I ;cident. We hope that that part of the public who are fond of sensations will take 
* lis interesting little fact to heart, and profit by it. 
Princess's Theatre. — Under the direction of Mr. F. B. Chatterton, this establish- 
ent re-opens on Saturday, August lat, with Boucicault's popular drama " Janet Pride." 
Me. W. M. Akhitrst is adapting for the Britannia Theatre Paul Feval's " La 
"'uchesse de Nemours." 
The Chilian Exhibition commissioners have resolved to request Signor Verdi to 
)mpo8e a hymn to be sung at the opening of the exhibition in 1875.

3st him at Westminster for detaining the property of the Viennese Ladies' Orchestra, 
for assaulting certain members of the company. His defence to the detention 
nonses was that the complainants had broken their engagement with him and owed 
money. In answer to the charge of assault he pleaded that the parties had mis- 
,ved themselves in the gardens, and been turned out. At the urgent suggestion of 
magistrate, Mr. Baum consented to refer the whole dispute to arbitration. 
IE Albert Hall has been taken on a lease for three years by Messrs. Wovello,

'i red for America, He has been engaged by Messrs. Jarrett and Palmer, for a 

-■ on commencing in August of next year, and extending over 150 nights, at QOl. per 

"' .t, with 301. additional for each matinee at which he appears. We may congratulate 

jrican playgoers on the treat they have in store, and the actor on the prospect he has

ET-PATEONAaE. — England is the place to neglect its own artists and patronise those 

ther countries. Here is an instance of ifc : the Jubilee Singers have gone home 

stly, having earned the whole of the 50,000 dollars which they set out to raise in 

]; land. This amount, added to the 40,000 dollars which they gained by their concerts 

fr .merica, makes 90,000 dollars which these young people have raised for the building 

■i 'isk University. The New York Independent says : — " The kind attention and respect 

^- 3h they have received in England from all classes — from the Queen, the Prime 

" ister, and the nobility, as well as the common people — and the delighted enthusiasm 

_ I which their slave songs have been everywhere listened to makes this visit a memor- 

I one to the singers themselves, as well as an event of signal value to 

i V race." 

lejs-QTHEE "Plying Man." — It is reported from Enghien, near Paris, that last 
day a would-be Laedalus made an attempt to fly with an apparatus consisting of a, 
of wings aided by two posts and a cord by which he balanced himself. The cord, 
ever, broke, and the aeronaut fell into the lake, luckily escaping with no worse hurt 
)cb a ducking. 
Eusic HATH CHAEMS. — At a concert lately given at Niort, in Prance, a curious 
"eriment was tried:— Two clarinet concertos being performed with the solo parts 
ed by five clarinets in unison ! The street clarinet player is a pleasing minstrel, but 
of them together might have a qualifying efiect.

nd MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 



No. 16,307. TUESDAY, July 28, 1874, Price Id. 

ATHLETIC SPORTS. 
The annual gathering of the pupils of the Royal Naval School, took place on Saturday 
the spacious grounds of the institution. We have never attended a meeting of this 
nd in which so much order and friendly feeling were present : the judges were Alfred 
imes, Esq., the secretary of the institution, G. F. E. Hawke, Esq., and J. N. Willan, 
sq. ; the starter being W. Hogg, Esq., vice-principal ; and to the ability and kindly 
lergy displayed by this quartet of gentlemen much of the success of the day's sports 
ay fairly be attributed. As the notice of such meetings is some little way removed 
am our province, we subjoin a report from the pen of a gentleman whose experience in 
ch matters gives value to his opinion ; he says, " The trial heats and some of the 
inor events were decided before the arrival of the company : the first public race, there- 
re, was one of a hundred yards, for pupils under twelve ; this was won easily by R. F. 
Eames — a young gentleman, who, judging from his capital " form," is following in 
e steps of his brother, who (it will be remembered in athletic-sporta circles,) was only 
evented by an accident in training from becoming the actual possessor 
the Civil Service Challenge Cup — having won the cup two years 
ccessively : W. Lyne came in second in the race just mentioned. 
16 100 yards (ages, 12 to 15) was won by J. A. Hastie ; T. C. Rowland being second. 
18 100 yards (over 15) fell to P. B. Greet ; Messrs. Cole and Liardet running a dead 
lat for the second place. R. Eames again distinguished himself at the high jump 
.nder 12), accomplishing 3 feet 9. A jump of 4 feet secured to J. A. Hastie the prize 
the 12 to 15 class ; while in the over 15 high-jump, Messrs. Lee and Taylor tied, at 
feet. The long jump prize was taken by C. Cole, who accomplished 17 feet. A 410 
,rds flat race was capitally contested, and won by J. Hastie : T. C. Rowland being 
cond. A quarter mile was also started for old boys, and was cleverly won by Mr. Woon ; 

18 T. Smith securing the second place. C. Cole and P. B. Greet were 
spectively first and second in the 440 yards, for over 15. A 120 yards hurdle- 
ce was as good a performance as we have ever seen ; and after a very close 
ntest, it was won by T. Miller, beating L. Liardet by about two yards. The strangrs' 
ce (100 yards) was won by Mr. Powles (South London Harriers.) The half mile 

i£ IS a splendid race, resulting in a dead heat between R. Pease and C. Cole. A Donkey 

1' ce caused much amusement, and was won by F. Miller. Among the other events 
icided before our arrival we may mention that R. F. C. Eames took first prize for 
rowing the Cricket Ball, and his brother, C. Eames, the prize at Fives. The prizes 
ive gracefully distributed by Mrs. Slater, the lady of the Principal of the Royal Naval 
ihool." To this we may add that we were struck, in many instances, not only by the 
tellectual and healthy appearance of the pupils of this well-conducted institution, but 
30 by the grace of deportment and superiority of manner which appeared to us to be 
e universal characteristic of those who took part in the day's sports. 

ID Miss Emily Muib and M. Mabius, together with Madlle. Rose Bell, will appear in 
e new one-act opera boufie, " The Silver Cage," to be produced at the Opera Comique 
I the occasion of Madlle. Rose Bell's benefit on next Friday afternoon. 
The Mohawk Minstbels will give their entertainment at the flower show to be held 
Cassiobury Park, Watford, to-morrow. In the evening they will appear at the Corn 
schange, under the patronage of the Countess of Essex. 

Mb. John Oxenfobd is preparing Mr, Swinburne's tragedy of " Bothwell " for the 
age. 
The comedy of " Mont Blanc " is to be given at Wallack's, New York.

NORTE WOOLWICH GARDENS. 

""Where shall we dine ?" This momentous question has times, and oft, puzzled both 

16 million and the upper ten. We know it puzzled us a very short time ago, when it 

appened to be one of those brilliant summer days that are not over plentiful in this 

)untry, and no doubt come to Londoners for the express purpose of putting them in 

lind of green fields and flowers. " "Where shall we dine ?" Decidedly not in town, on 

ich a day as this. So we hastened to Hungerford, for the purpose of taking the boat 

Richmond, but to our dismay found there were no boats journeying in that direction, 

tid, therefore, we boarded a Woolwich steamer, and paddled in the opposite direction. 

7e had intended to have landed at G-reenwich, to have taken a stroll through the Park, 

ad partaken of our dinner at the Trafalgar ; but when we arrived at the pier, we found 

ur water excursion had been so pleasant that we determined to prolong it as far as 

ilackwall. The place celebrated for its White-bait was reached in due course, and then 

ti ^e asked ourselves the question, why we should dine there when we could proceed to 

'' [orth Woolwich with the certainty of procuring a capital and inexpensive dinner from 

"^ le cuisine of the People's Caterer ? This idea we carried out, and soon found ourselves 

jjleated in a cozy saloon, facing the river, with a dinner consisting of all the delicacies of 

tie season, and a bottle of " the good Rhein Wine " before us. Our dinner over, we 

_ ghted our usual cigar, and went into the gardens to see the entertainments which Mr. 

V. Holland so liberally provides for his patrons. We found we were too late to see 

H Sarah's Toung Man," or the new ballet divertissement, arranged by Mr. Milano, but 

!re were in time to witness " Paddy Miles," which, if truth must be spoken, we do not 

lonsider a very good farce, although it seemed to please the audience. Mr. J. Pawn 

iras the Limerick boy, and made the most of the part. The farce was followed by the 

l^rand Amazonian Ballet, in which fifty ladies appeared, in gorgeous array, and fully 

quipped to conquer any one that might come in their way. These Amazons after going 

jhrough a variety of intricate evolutions, formed a tableau in which the golden cascade 

iiavented by Messrs. Parkes and Tanner was introduced, and the curtain descended on a 

cene which was simply charming. Then came what we might properly designate as 

. Le piece de resistance," our translation of which is dancing on the monster platform 

,nd in the ball-room, to the inspiring music of the excellent bands provided and 

' onducted by that talented musician, Mr. Sydney Davis. We soon perceived that North 

iVooiwich is largely patronised by the Hebrew race, who always believe in dancing ; and 

t was a pleasant sight to watch the pretty daughters of Israel enjoy their " tournez," 

ir with such gusto go in for the grand chain. Woolwich would be nowhere without its 

Jancers. A word of praise is due to Mr. Birch, the M.C, who was indefatigable in 

)roviding partners for the ladies. The gardens are brilliantly illuminated by Mr. 

Ouffell, and the efi'ect produced by the interminable arches, in the long walk, cannot be 

lurpassed in any other gardens. After witnessing a very good display of fireworks by 

Mr. Wells, we fortified ourselves with a drop of Mr. Holland's choice brandy, the like of 

vhich we should have no objection to have in our own cellar ; we then departed for town, 

laving had an excellent dinner and spent a most enjoyable evening. 

The last nights of " Q-irofle-Q-irofla" at the Opeea Comique are announced. The 
mdience here have fallen ofi" numerically. Perhaps this is a circumstance to be attributed 
to an oppressive temperature, but we think it more probable that the work itself is not 
bighly popular. It will never be a " Madame Angot." 
The Coitet, according to o£S.cial announcement, will shortly terminate its season.

M MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 




DuuRT Lane. — This theatre will commence its season on the 29th of August. The 
ptformances will consist of " Amy Eobsart," and " Jack in the Box." " Eichard Coeur 
d^ Lion " is announced for the 29th of September. Mr. Anderson, Mr. Creswick, and 
o^er celebrated artistes are engaged. Amongst some of the popular announcements in 
tlf programme is that of the engagement of the clever Vokes family, who were missed 
trin their post last year, and who will take their prominent places this _ year in the 
piitomime, which comes as usual from the essentially pantomimic brain of Mr. E. 
Binchard. 

loTAL Natal School, New Cuoss. — "We were invited to the distribution of prizes 
ithis schoolastic institution on Tuesday. We were struck by the testimony borne to 
ill proficiency of the generality of the pupils— testimony that does infinite credit to 
1;ll ability and scholastic attainments of the principal, the Rev. E. B. Slater, and his 
i^istant masters. The prizes were given away by the Hon. Sir F. Grey, who compli- 
jiQted the pupils upon the good work they had done since the last distribution : it 
^5 something remarkable that the pupil who gained the gold medal for classics, should 
i,D be first in mathematics, and also in I'rench : the honour was won by a youtb named 
Cck. Another scholar (Tucker) took prizes for almost all he was engaged in. A 
-!^Q number of prizes were distributed, and a very pleasant gathering was brought to 
■ dose most satisfactorily. 

i.pYCETjM Theatre. — This theatre will open on Saturday next, under the direction of 
y-. Charles Morton and Miss Emily Soldene. " The G-rand Duchess," with a most 
ifcient and attractive company, and with new dresses and other appointments, has been 

icted to commence a season that we laope, as we have little doubt, will satisfy amply 

who are concerned in its success. The season is intended to last only two mouths. 

are not of those who swear by French acting : there is too much of the steam-power 

leipLciple in it ; that it is lively and intelligent we readily admit, but that purely French 

aic opera, both in reference to singing and acting, is inferior to our own interpretation 

lit, we feel quite positive. There is more tone in the vocal part, and there is in the 
-|ing an absence of the appearance of haste and impatience which, carried to excess, 

(iders the French performance both uncomfortable and unpleasant. We, therefore, 
,i(|lcome " The Grand Duchess " in her Englisb dress. 

VEadame Card's Entertainment. — After a twelvemonth's absence in the provinces, 
in^tdame Gilliland Card has re-opened her entertainment of magical and mesmeric 

Lsions at the Berner's Hall, Islington, with every promise of another successful 
jl extended season. The performance, as now presented, is divided into three parts, 
IJ I first consisting of jugglery and sleight-of-hand feats, in the manipulation of which 
ijijidame Card rivals in dexterity the best professors of the art. The next part of the 
' ertainment is sustained by Mr. F. Abney, who gives some comic delineations of 

iracter, and then follows the mesmeric portion of Madame Card's share of the 

formance. The exhibition never fails to evoke roars of laughter from all parts of 
B* room. 
r. S'ew Historical Plat. — Sardou's " Officier de Fortune '* is to be given at the 

ibigu, and a great historical play by the same author is promised at the Gaite. It is 

d that this play is to be called " Gemma," and will cost about ^4,000 to mount. 

Ehe late Tom Hood. — Tom Hood is now accused of being a cremationist, because 
'0 said shortly before his death that " he was dying out of charity to the undertaker, 

.0 wished to urn a lively Hood."

.nd MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 

No. 16,310. FEIDAY, July 31, 1874. Price Id. 

GLOUCESTER MUSICAL FESTIVAL. 

The triennial musical festival of the three choirs of Worcester, Hereford, and 

Houcester will be held at Gloucester on Tuesday, the 8th of September, and three 

)llowing days. Dr. "Wesley has concluded engagements with the following artistes : — 

[dlle. Tietjens and Miss Edith "Wynne, sopranos ; Madame Trebelli-Bettini, Miss 

" j.ntoinette Sterling and Miss G-riffiths, contraltos ; Mr. E. Lloyd and Mr. Bentham, 

?nors ; Signor Agnesi and Mr. Lewis Thomas, basses. Mr. Sainton will be the leader 

f the orchestra, which will include some of the most accomplished instrumentalists in 

london ; and a thoroughly effective chorus selected from the metropolis and chief 

rovincial towns. The oratorios selected for performance at the Cathedral are Handel's 

Messiah," Mendelssohn's " Elijah," Spohr's " Last Judgment," Weber's cantata, " Praise 

ehovah," Haydn's " Creation," Handel's " Israel in Egypt," Rossini's " Stabat Mater," 

. ad " Messe Solennelle." The evening pro<j;ramme includes symphonies by Mozart and 

r ieethoven, and the famous " Jupiter " symphony. At one of the evening concerts Mr. 

'arrodus, the celebrated violinist, will play a concerto. The festival will conclude with 

'-'[special choral service in the Cathedral on Friday evening, the 11th of September. 

'he list of stewards comprises already upwards of one hundred names ; no that a very 

~ uccessful gathering is to be anticipated. It is something like a reproach to the English 

v phool of vocal art, that the three principal singers should be foreigners, engaged to 

iterpret oratorio music, at our great provincial festival. Formerly, the interpretation 

f such music was left to English singers. In the case before us, the principal soprano 

a foreigner, the principal contralto, and so is the bass. Well, we have no fault to 

nd with performers of such ability and standing in the profession, for as an oratorio 

nger Madlle. Titiens ranks in the very highest class, and Trebelli-Bettini is very little 

alow that standard; of course, we have basses quite equal to, in one instance better than, 

ignor Agnesi ; but still the engagement, as far as talent is concerned, is perfectly 

itisfactory. Our regret is, that the English vocal art in such meetings as that to 

_ hich we are now giving publicity, should not be represented by our own country men 

nd women. 

Baenum's Hippodrome. — Miss Castyrena, the pretty girl-rider who was thrown fron> 

or horse in Barnum's Hippodrome, on the evening of the 26th ult., and supposed to be 

itally injured, is recovering. The horse which she was riding fell and rolled over her 

: nd broke his neck, and the horse which followed stepped upon her and crushed her ribs. 

ler face was terribly bruised, but not permanently disfigured. She is very handsome, 

nd a great favourite. 

RoTAL Botanic Society, Regent's Paek. — At a recent meeting of this society, 

■ Jolonel Piatt in the chair, the following six candidates were balloted for and duly elected 

-' allows of the society. The Marchioness Camden, Miss Augusta Caldwell, James Brogden 

, ^sq., Frederick Henry Maitiand, Esq., John Lomax, Esq., Charles Fletcher d'Anves 

)rred, Esq. Amongst the donations reported was a remarkable specimen of a rose with 

; reen flowers presented by Lord Northwick. 

Ameeican Nonsense. — A tall western girl, named Short, long loved a certain big 

It. Little, while Little, little thinking of Short, loved a little lass, named Long. To 

''iaake a long story short. Little proposed to Long ; and Short longed to be even with 

,„ ijittle's shortcomings. So Short, meeting Long, threatened to marry Little before Long, 

7hich caused Little, in a short time, to marry Long. Query — Did tall Short love big 

jittle less because Little loved Long ?

HOLLO WAY'S PILLS AND OINTMENT.— Multitudes have congratulat 
themselves on their immunity from deranged stomachs, sick headaches, and insuperable listle 
ness, since they have occasionlly resorted to this fine alterative medicine. Our comfort, happiness, a 
security depend on the knowledge that most diseases originate from apparently a trifling beginning, a 
that the large proportion of them spring from inattention to the state of the stomach. Professor H ■ 
loway has turned this knowledge to good account by discovering medicines which cure, with j 
exception, the attendants on disordered digestion.. They ward off, likewise, the torturing sick headac i

Hatmabket THEATEE.-We again invite attention to Mr. Buckstone's annual benefit ' 
Tsicli will take place on Monday, wken Mr. Buchanan's new comedy will be performed 
fj the first time ; and, in addition to other attractions, Mr. Sims Eeeves will sing two

: kiNCESs's Theatse.— Mr. Chatterton will open this theatre this evening, and Mr. 

tebster is to play there twenty-four nights, supported by Mr. Belmore and Mrs 

Mvei Mellon The opening piece is to be " Janet Pride, when Mr. Webster 
i ^1 resume his original character (Richard Pride), and Mrs. Mellon hers. 

>ANDAED Theatre.— The attraction to the Shoreditch people just now is, theper- 

fVance of " Charles I." by the Lyceum company. That the high Tory sentiments 
.eanciated by the martyred king should be so warmly welcomed by the East-enders, is 
ts-nethingtostareat: warmly entering into the sufferings of the king, they applaud 
.eery sentiment he utters with a vehemence that shows their sympathy for high church 

|f.nciples. Notwithstanding the admirable acting in the two chief parts, the play itselr 

ievidently the attraction, and will certainly be so for some time. , ^ ^, ^ 

^- tJRTSTAL PALACE.-The Bauk-holiday will be celebrated on Monday by a great 
''Iliad concert," in the centre transept, when Madame Gilliess Corri, Miss Anna 
'ililliams, Mr. Edward Lloyd, Mr. Carleton, and Signor Poliwill make their appearance : 

tere will also be a performance in the Opera Theatre, a balloon ascent, and many other 
' atractions— the whole of the great fountain system amongst the number. A huge bili 
^^fare appears to have been provided for the guests of the Palace, sufficient to satiate 

t3 taste of all who take an interest in the Bank Holiday, and also to gladden the heart 
^c Sir J. Lubbock, who delighteth therein. i. > i a 

> Mr. Sothebn.— We see by an American paper that this popular actor has played 

■ ])rd Dundrearv no less than four thousand times. . 

The Eeench"' Plats at the Peincess's Theatre.— A letter has been received, 

■ ejnedbv the leading members of the French company recently playing at the Princess s 
-^leatrc'in which they express their gratitude for the efforts made m their behalf, and 

iquest us to make known how highly they appreciate the marks of sympathy they 

Ive received. They are now returning to France. -,. , i •■• e i.u 

The Leeds Musical Festival, which is for the benefit of the medical chanties of the 

-Iwn, and has the patronage of her Majesty the Queen, is announced to commence on 

(3tober 14th, and to last four days. Madlle. Titjens and several distinguished artistes 

( the Italian Opera have been engaged. Sir Michael Costa will act as conductor. 

Financial Aet.— This story is told by an American artist, and it illustrates very 

ircibly the statement regarding picture-buyers abroad made by a Pans correspondent 

«-i the Courier a few weeks ago. The artist says he was accosted by a fellow-country- 

*^n in this manner : — " Oh, I am so glad. Let me ask you some questions. 1 have 

len buying pictures. Can you tell me whether or not 1 have been cheated ^ ibey are 

iout so large," holding his hands in various positions to indicate the different sizes, 

'md cost so much," naming the price of each. " Do you think I paid too much ? Ihe 

list being unwilling to disturb his equanimity replied that it depended a good deal on 

rcumstances, but he thought it most likely he had not paid more than was right. 

One more question, mister," he exclaimed anxiously, as the artist was about to resume 

^ s work. " Do you think " (leaning over him and speakmg m a lower tone), do you 

L*ially think, mister, that these Eyetallians put good materials in their pictures ?

No. 16,312. MONDAY, August 3, 1S74. Price Id. 



THE GREAT CRICKET-MATCH BY THE MUSIC HALL ARTISTS. 

AVe must frankly confess that we are not a lover of cricket ; tlie reason can be easily 

xplained, we do not understand the game. We remember that, in our schoolboy days, 

argument would induce us to stand before the wicket with only a narrow piece of 

'illow to protect our stumps, or could we ever be persuaded to either stop or catch a 

all. Our dominie used to impress upon us that it was a manly sport. He was, no 

:!oubt, right — at least we thought so, and therefore determined to wait until we became a 

lan before we attempted it. We have become a man, but we find we have no greater 

artiality for the game than in the days gone by. Notwithstanding these ideas, we 

" Iways go to Lord's to witness the two matches between the Oxford and Cambridge, and 

[ lie Eton and Harrow. We have a chat with our friend Hays ; we take our seat in the 

rand ; we begin to imagine we are interested in the game, but after watching two or 

We overs, we stroll among the carriages, and admire their lovely occupants. ] We listen 

D their opinion as to the merits of the light and dark blues, and hear how one angelic 

teature will be gloved for the season should Dark prove victorious. We own to a weak- 

: jess for bright eyes, and brilliant costumes, and enjoy our cricketing at Lord's. It is, 

: kerefore, no wonder when we heard that all the fascinating serio-comiques, and all the 

• harming pets of the ballet, would visit the Oval at Kennington, on Wednesday last, 

' ) patronize the Grreat Match to be played by the luminaries of the Music Halls 

)r the benefit of the Music Hall Sick JFuud, that we were found once more witnessing 

cricket match. The players were selected from those artists that live on the North 

!Ld South side of the Thames, Messrs A. Hemmings, W. Walton, J. Barnes, W. Bint, 
. Coyne, W. West, E. C. Dunbar, E. Q-eldard, H. Hemfrey, J. H. Eiley, Victor Listen, 
If. G-eorge, W. Webb, C. Pearson, A. Aubrey, and H. Hearn were chosen to protect 
e honor of the north ; whilst F. Wills, H. Wills, W. Hawkins, C. Bell, H. Almouti, 
. Devey, Le Clerc, C. Murry, T. Holmes, Nat Ogden, Smyth, Will Eiley, J. Barnum, 
Lawrence, Fred. La Eoche, and Little Bob, were to do their best for the south, and 
ey did the best, for they got 86 runs against their adversaries' 70, thereby winning the 
atch by 16 runs ; but it must be remembered that time only allowed of one innings to 
le played. The artistes appeared in the characters by which they had gained their 
fiurels. We had the Scamp Eiley and the Quaker Eiley, Nat Ogden, as Mother G-amp ; 
"alker as Folly ; Holmes as Uriah Heap ; Fred. Coyne as a bold Dragoon ; Fred La 
oche as an officer in the Q-uards ; the renowned C. Pearson, the Sussex Dwarf, as 
uilp ; and a good sprinkling of clowns, niggers, acrobats, and eccentrics. We heard 
e melancholy party declare that it was a ^.x^graee to cricket. It may have been, but, 
3 we have said before, we do not understand the game, so we did not argue the point ; 
11 that we know is, that we enjoyed ourselves quite as well as if the melancholy party 
tclad pronounced it perfect. We thought that when the umpire called over, and when all 
f 16 fielders turned summersaults, it was something to look at, and far more amusing than 
,, 16 stately proceedings at Lord's. There was a numerous attendance of spectators, 
^ ;e should imagine between three and four thousand, but we have no doubt the number 
[, ould have been doubled if it had been better advertised, for out of the clique no one 
■ new anything about it. A band of music was on the ground, and the arrangements 
-■'ere ably carried out by Henri Clark, G. Hunt, and F. Maynard, who will no doubt 
jjcle able to hand over a handsome sum to the Fund. 

Fatal Accident at the Standaed Theatee. — On Monday last, Mr. Eawlinge, one 
the employes of the Standard Theatre, while covering uj) the house, fell from the 
allery into the pit. The injuries he sustained resulted in his death, on Wednesday 
lorning.

themselves on their immunity from deranged stomachs, sick headaches, and insuperable listl 
ness, since they have occasionlly resorted to this fine alterative medicine. Our comfort, happiness, 
security depend on the knowledge that most diseases originate from apparently a trifling beginning, 
that the large proportion of them spring from inattention to the state of the stomach. Professor ] 
loway has turned this knowledge to good account by discovering medicines which cure, witl 
exception, the attendants on disordered digestion. They ward off, likewise, the torturing sick heada

TUESDAY, August 4, 1874. 



Price Id. 



LYCEUM THEATRE. 

A CEOWDED house on the re-opening of a theatre is a good omen of future success ; 
te more especially so when an enthusiastic audience is its characteristic attendant. 
'The Grand Duchess," with Miss Soldene in the principal character, and a company 
r eected with the nicest propriety, could scarcely fail to achieve the result at which the 
^ rmagement arrived on Saturday night. The dashing, we had almost decided that it 
vis daring, version given by Miss Soldene of the Duchess, is well-known northwards, 
aid her popularity has followed her to the west. The spirited way in which she sings 
I ts principal airs — notably, " Lo, here the Sabre " (Voici le Sabre) and " I dote on the 
"lUitary," (Ah, que j'aime les Militaires) — produced a well-earned encore. Miss 
^Idene's voice is one of very fine quality, and her compass is extraordinary, yet both 
t J upper and lower register of her voice is strictly in tune ; her spirit and energy some- 
ties carry her a little beyond the legitimate vocal pale, yet there is so much life both 
iher singing and acting, that one really does scarcely know which to admire most ; 
hr acting is quite equal to her singing ; a little more finish in her vocalization and Miss 
Sldene could hold her own against any of her compeers — native or foriegn. Miss Vesey 
nde a very quiet and pleasing Wanda, singing her duet with Mr. Beverley with 
rcasiderable taste. But commend us to the "exquisite fooling" of Mr. Rosenthal : 
tip dash and spirit that he threw into the part of the G-eneral produced the heartiest 
kghter, and his earnestly fierce manner, and capital singing impressed us with a strong 
blief that Mr. Rosenthal will be a very great favourite — the greater the more he is 
town. We have only apace to refer, in a general way, to the other performers, who 
_wre singularly well adapted for their respective parts ; but we may truly say, that 
) tl)y all acquitted themselves to admiration — the band and chorus doing full justice to 
tl music. We shall have frequent opportunities to refer to the performance of this 
ojra. 

^OUBT Theatre. — The provincial tour of the Court Theatre Company will commence 
oiAugust 24th, when they appear at the Theatre Royal, Manchester. Nearly the 
wole of the London troupe are engaged, and also the favourite actress, Miss Eleanor 
Bfton. The opening programme will consist of " Alone," and Mr. Gilbert's eccentricity, 
■' be Wedding March." Mr. F. A. Marshall's very successful comedy ■* Brighton " will 
ab probably be performed. 

^BOMEKADE CoNCEBTs AT CoYENT G-ARDEN". — Promeuade concerts will shortly be 
rtewed at Co vent Garden, and H. Herve will be the conductor. The enterprise has 
3(u adopted and is promoted solely by Messrs. A. and S. Gatti, the restaurateurs, who 
iJoished the substantial comforts during M. Riviere's season last year. In addition to 
;1 services of M. Herve, the popular author of " Chilperic," Messrs. Gatti have secured 

I owerful corps of artistes. Signer Lago is to be the director of the chorus. Madlle. 
Biati, of the Imperial Theatres at St. Petersburg and Vienna, and Madlle. Bianchi, 
ibady v?ell known to the public by her performances at the Royal Italian Opera here, 

II the prime donne. Mr. Pearson is the tenor, Mr. Carleton, a vocalist who has made 
I jputation in the United States and was favourably heard in England last year, is the 
(citone, Mr. Lewis Thomas the basso, and Mr. Levy, the cornet player, whose merits 

■'% familiar to all musical audiences, are also engaged. Mr. Russell is to be the manager. 

^ |.^HE Ebench Pitch. — Dr. Stone, from careful observations made with tuning forks, 
1^ found that at neither house is the French pitch or anything approaching to it in 
cial use. Covent Garden, which is rather the lower of the two, is a full quarter tone 

i^ ibve the Erench diapason, while Drury Lane is at ordinary English concert pitch.

liii MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 



h. 16,3U. WEDNESDAY, August 5, 1874. Price Id. 

HATMARKET THEATRE. 

'p[E new comedy by Mr. Buclianan was acted on Monday last, for the first time, ou 

aoccasion of Mr. Buckstone's benefit. " The Madcap Prince " is, as might be expected, 

ih'les II., the scene being laid in the period immediately after the Battle of Worcester, 

J 'b play achieved undoubted success, and to those who are acquainted with the poems 

fir. Buchanan the result will be in no way surprising. In the course of the evening, 

EiBuckstone delivered the following abbreviated address -. — As it has been my custom 

irjome years past to say a few words to you at the close of a season, I shall continue 

Iiaj custom this evening, not only to thank you for your patronage, or refer to past 

raosses, but to take you behind the scenes, and tell you in confidence what we intend 

:) i), and our hopes for the future. On this occasion, I must confess that I cannot 

o."t of any great successes during the season just ending, for although I have produced 

113 important pieces, not one of them answered my expectations ; still, I do not 

■rair, but look forward with confidence to better fortune next year. With regard to 

le'ailure of the plays I have referred to, you may naturally ask why I accepted them, 

3 icwhere was my judgment in so doing. In the first place, it is impossible to know 

tJi ; piece may be successful until it has been fairly placed before the public: many 

nunstances may lead a manager astray ; amongst them may be named, the reception 

XI by his company at the reading of a new play. An instance of this occurred very 

!Citly here. A new comedy was read, the laughter was loud and continuous ; indeed, 

lies the hilarity was absolutely hysterical. 1 was promised that the piece would run 

rwo or three years, that a fortune was before me, and all sorts of congratulations 

-ned in upon me and the authors. The play was placed upon the stage with every 

d to correct and expensive scenery andwbat weterm properties. Now for the reverse : 

ejiece was a failure ; the dialogue, that in the green-room caused roars of laughter, 

-lllat when delivered on the stage, and, after a few nights, the play was withdrawn. 

0, ladies and gentlemen, I must turn over a new leaf, and tell you my hopes for the 

t.^e. Mr. Buchanan's comedy, which you have received so cordially this evening, will 

) ^ain produced next season, to be followed by other novelties. I must also inform 

)ifchat Mr. Sothern will return from x^merica in October, with some new ideas to be 

Mounded by my Lord Dundreary ; these will be followed by important novelties 

h h he is now storing up against the time of his return. Although the intense beat 

tsnelted away the audiences at most of the London theatres, yet its influence to-night 

)een quite neutralised by the presence of that brilliant and most attractive of our 

c^ stars, Mr. Sims Eeeves, who, for the fourth time, has generously volunteered to 

1 for me. Another act of good feeling it is but proper I should mention, and that is 

form you that the Haymarket Company, Orchestra, and Servants have to-night 

n their services gratuitously. And one pleasant reference I ought not to omit, but I 

ix it my duty to acknowledge the great service Mr. Tom Taylor's comedy of " The 

rland Eoute" has been to the theatre, which in the midst of some disappointments 

.iSjeen performed this season for one hundred and fourteen nights. On Monday next, 

Mes and Grentlemen, I shall commence my annual tour with the Haymarket company, 

iing Liverpool, Edinburgh, Q-laagow, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and Birmingham, leaving 

i emoiselle Beatrice and her excellent company to occupy these boards for a few 

_— m;s. Therefore, Ladies and Gentlemen, uniilOctober, I respectfully bid you farewell." 

i,]eii|comedy was well acted' by Mrs. Kendal, Mr. Howe, Mr. Kendal, Mr. Eogers, and 

, iiBuckstone. The theatre was crowded in every part.

Peincess's Theatre. — The opening of the Princess's was celebrated on Saturday, by 
e performance of " Janet Pride," and the re-appearance of Mr. Benjamin Webster, 
the principal part. Those who recollect how admirably he played the leading part in 
is drama will be glad to bear, and hasten to see, that he still infuses into the character 
e same depth of feeling and reality that marked his earlier performances : his engage- 
ent extends only over a few nights when he intends to make a tour in the provinces, 
eviously to his taking leave of the stage. Mr. Webster is well supported by a com- 
,ny brought together with great judgment by Mr. Cbatterton, and we believe that the 
ason will be a very successful one. 

Death op Mrs. Walter Lact. — This lamented lady, one of the best actresses of 
e present century, has recently passed from amongst us. As Lady Teazle she had no 
ual ; and in the higher range of character, popular as Mrs. Nisbett was Mrs. Walter 
icy, then Miss Taylor, she was unrivalled. We cannot fail either to recollect her 
'aceful and vivacious farce-acting — notably in poor Haynes Bayly's " Tom Noddy's 
scret" — the best farce of its period. Mrs. Lacy made her last appearance, we think, 
the Olympic in 1815. She has since suffered much from a painful malady. Her age 
jas sixty- seven. 

The late Sheridan" Knowles. — A magnificent edition of the late Sheridan Knowles's 

arks has been printed for private circulation at the expense of Mr. James M' Henry. 

consists of his " Dramatic Works," in 2 vols. ; his " Tales and Novelettes," in 1 vol. ; 

Lectures on Dramatic Literature," 1 vol. ; "Lectures on Oratory," 1 vol. ; and '• Life," 

S« ' his son, Eichard Brinsley Knowles, 1 vol. Some of the pieces here reprinted are 
arce, and some are now printed for the first time. These six vols, are in Ito, on fine 
iper, " revised and edited by Francis Harvey," to the number of only 25 copies. 
Editorial Privileges. — We learn from a Mexican correspondent that editors in 
Mexico don't care about extended circulation. The fewer subscribers they have the 
wer times they are shot at. A capital excuse for a small circulation ! 
The Flight op Authors. — The various authors are dispersed : — Offenbach may be 
en every day on the terrace of Saint-Grermain, humming the airs of his new work, 
IVCadame I'Archiduc ;" Sardou, for Marly, corresponds with Lecocq, and sends him by 
ts and scraps the scenes of " Pres Saint- Grervais ;" and Hector Cremieux is at Deau- 
lle, with his family, putting the last touches to his new production, the " Famille 
•ouillac." All those good people are about to return to Paris. Lecocq, who inhabits a 

111'' ilicious cottage at Maisons-Laffitte, is said to be already tired of rural pleasures. 

A great treat is promised the lovers of dramatic literature in the forthcoming 
J publication of the dramas of Dr. Westland Marston. Such works as " The Patrician's 

"Hiiughter," "Anne Blake," " Strathmore," and " Philip of France " have long been 

ffitlo long the rarest as well as the most prized of plays. They have won the highest 
miration of the most competent critics, and have established solidly one of the most 
stinguished of reputations. At the close will be a few poetical compositions. The 
iblishers will be Messrs. Chattb and Windus. 
"Paul et Yieginie," the new opera by Victor Masse, will be performed first at the 

311 russels great Opera next winter. Madame Albani and M. Capoul are to take the 

igsiading parts. 

Among the goods seized for rent at the house of an actress in Paris was an ebony 
ffin, ornamented with silver nails, and lined with silk and velvet, and of which she 
.rnished the model, with the design for the silver monogram on the lid.

,16,316. FRIDAY, August r, 1874, Price Id. 

CREMORNE EN FETE. 

IiSTOET will chronicle the year 1874 as the one celebrated for its Garden Parties. 

rise alfresco assemhUes were inaugurated by Her Most Q-racious Majesty Queen 

/i;oria, and afterwards given by members of the royal family, the dignitaries of the 

i!h:*ch, and the nobility. In fact, garden parties have become so fashionable that every 

ac who possesses a garden, or even a strip of one, seems bound to follow the alfresco 

Qcement, and Mrs. Contango, of Clapham, now sends out her invitations ; so does Mrs. 

Diper, of Dalston, and even Mrs. Baggs, of Bermondsey, gives a tea aud sJiri/np 

lirngst her flower pots in the back yard. But we fully believe that the garden party 

r,im in commemoration of the Bank-holiday by Mr. Baum, at Cremorue Grardens, will 

rjQ, its own against the best of the parties given during the season. Cremorne never 

: oi ed so brilliant. It would be useless for us to endeavour to calculate the number of 

■aiJS which were glistening in every direction. It would defy a Babbage. We remember 

lang heard of a child that asked its mamma, who lighted the stars ; so one might well 

•excused for inquiring how so many lamps were lighted as were to be seen on this 

ivfiing; every walk was hung with festoons and devices of the most novel description in 

b^d. lamps and Chinese lanterns. The trees were decorated with transparent fruit, 

/ n the flower beds were a blaze of colour. We did ask the question, and received this 

- nver, Mr. Dufi"ell, the illuminator of Old Yauxhall. All hail to Mr. Dufl'ell and hia 

, Krie men for affording us such a treat. It was, indeed, a splendid sight to behold the 

li daughters of Eve decked in gay costume, and attended by their faithful swains 

idadering through this illuminated paradise, and listening to Lecocq's inspiring music 

-fOL " Grirofle-Girofla," so charmingly executed by M. Audibert's band. We wondered, 

]'.\e departed spirits of those gallants that once roamed o'er the royal property could 

siit earth, what they would have thought of Cremorne. What they would have 

i4ght of the ballet with its 100 coryphees, and the other amusements that were pro- 

liod for the visitors to the garden party, which conijisted of the performance by the 

inpor Brothers, Professor Eenhard, Dugwar, and Tangbon, Doughty's clever dogs, 

farce of " Turn Him Out," and a superb display of fireworks by Mr. Wells. Mr. 
, the courteous acting-manager, was indefatigable in looking to the comfort of the 
or 6000 guests that were present. We trust that Mr.^ Baum will, before long. 
){!at the great garden party of 1874. 

'ttTSTAL Palace. — It does not even require the fine weather which pleasure seekers 
: 11 classes enjoyed on Monday to render the Palace at Sydenham one of the most 

it ;tjictive places of recreation within the reach of the London populace. Thanks to the 

"'^ijense extent of the buildings, the weather can here at least be set at defiance, and 
Qor amusements are always forthocming equal to the demand, however large it may 
)- and seldom has the management been called upon to cater for the pleasure of more 
s 3rs than on Monday. Perhaps the threatening state of the weather in the morning 
a have caused more than one paterfamilias to decide upon making Sydenham the 
)bt of his day's excursion. No doubt, too, the very liberal programme of amusements 

'^ilid by the management attracted many of the large assemblage. And a liberal 
'cramme it certainly was, and freely enjoyed by all present. 
■BED. EvAKS and his troupe of pantomimists have just concluded a very successful 

^t of Scotland and the north of England, and have now made an engagement with 

ji^iur Lloyd, Esq., to appear with his company at the Queen's Theatre, Dublin.

PROMENADE CONCERTS. 
T no time since the establishment of promenade concerts have the atti-actions put 
m approached those of the series announced to commence at Covent G-arden this 
^mJ. Firstly, we have a conductor of high standing and great ability ; then the 
Einestra over which he presides contains some— a great many—ot the best orchestral 
elormers of the time; we are also promised an efficient and good practical chorus. 
Jti names alone of the soloists will be sufficient to interest all lovers ot the art divine ; 
-lille. Bianchi, the favourite vocalist of the Eoyal Italian Opera; Madlle. Benati, 
%ly praised by the press of St. Petersburg, from which place she comes bringing 
e4 her very high credentials; Mr. Pearson, Mr. Carlton, and Mr. Lewis Thomas will 
qlsinc. to-night. Then the instrumental "form "is grand -Wieniawski, the great 
viLarian violinist, will make his first appearance after an absence of tour years ; Mr., 
:i[vey, from America, a wonder on the trombone, and Mr. .T. Levy, the popular cornet, 
' rialso to be present. The decorations are something superb. 

lEKBECK LiTEBABT AND SCIENTIFIC INSTITUTION.-We wcre present, ou Wednes- 
a evening, at the usual quarterly entertainment given by the Llocution Class. 11 
; eformance commenced with the late Charles Dance's farce, " Naval Engagements, 
oughly comic piece. The Admiral Kiugstone of Mr. Douglas was 



The 

a most finished 



of 



n,ti well-studied performance. Mr. F. M. VViUoughby, who undertook the part 
rQcrstone, iun., has evidentlv taken Mr. Kendal for his model, and being personally 

i;ifar, we could at times almost believe Mr. Kendal was before us. Mrs. 2s e.vbery and 

4s Lizzie Dudley respectively as Mrs. Pontifex and Miss Mortimer, were really 
nillent ; and although a little hitch occurred for want of a word, the tault lay 
^Udedly more with the prompter than the performers. Mr. A. Sharpe (the comic 

Qti) made much of the part of Dennis, the Irish waiter. Between the ^pieces Mr. 
,E^liam Wright, gave a most pathetic recitation, " The Island of the Scots, in a man- 
"A(j that would have been creditable even to many of our best professional elocutionists. 
"'Ahrew Halliday's comedy, " Checkmate," was the concluding piece. Mr. Douglas sus- 
ed the part of Sir Everton Tofi"ee capitally ; but of Mr. Sharpe, as the Groom, and 
counterfet baronet it is impossible to si)eak to highly ; he kept the audience in a roar 
'"liaughter the whole time he was on the stage. Miss Kemble (who might have chosen a 
-^ei ostentatious name) gave a most refined and well-considered rendering of the heiress, 
ii'Ai. the imitation of ladies' maid, earning a well-deserved ovation at the fall of the cur- 
'%u Miss Lizzie Dudley was excessively funny as Martha Bun. The other parts (servants 
vj;he hall) were capitally rendered by Miss Windebank, Messrs. Kingston, Wells, 
Jiollan, Blacthley, and Coombes. The performance, taken as a whole, was consider- 
wielfT above the standard of Amateur Theatricals; it was decidedly one of the best that 
'■^ been given by the class. A word of praise is due to Miss Ada Saunders for her 
jf'^ellent performance on the pianoforte between the acts. 
"tvLiss Lydia Thompson, who has just returned from a very successful tour m the 

'ited States, intends to play in London, and an arrangement has been made with 
BBiijssrs. J. S. Clarke and W. R. Field for her appearance at the Charing-cross Theatre 
)ri8C a brief season, commencing in September. 

^B. G-EOEGE EiGNOLD will accompany Mr. Coleman in his provincial tour with 
lancarty," commencing on the 24th iust., and in January next this popular actor sails 
!»-'^^ America to fulfil a very lucrative engagement. Before he leaves us, Mr. Eignold 
ervea a substanial token of public regard in the shape of a bumper benefit.

MOORE AND BURGESS MINSTRELS. 

There is not a more agreeable — a more amusing — evening to be spent at any place of 
entertainment in London than can be passed at the St. James's Hall, in the presence of 
the admirable troupe of minstrels assembled by Messrs. Moore and Burgess. We were 
there on Friday night, and never enjoyed an entertainment more ; in their vocal band 
they have eminent talent — several tenor voices, one or two of excellent quality — notably 
Mr. de Brenner, whose high chest-notes are both resonant and powerful, and Mr. Cyrus 
Neile, who sang with energy, taste, and feeling ; Mr. Romer sang a bass song, written 
in a very low key, and yet he delivered the low note with iirmness, beiag strictly in 
tune ; he has a very powerful voice, and judgment in using it. The other singers are , 
good performers in their several vocations. We have not space to refer to them par- 
|ticularly, but Mr. H. Templeton's " Hansom Cab," Mr. S. Herbert's " Please give me a 
ipenny," and the solos sung by Mr. Vernon Reed, Mr. Henricy, Mr. CoUinson, and Mr. 
jH. Norman are all worthy of critical commendation. We need scarcely say how well 
the comic element is supported : Mr. Or. W. Moore keeps his audience in uncontrollable 
laughter during the whole of his performance ; his impromptu apology, which deceived 
the audience so agreeably, and which it would be unfair to describe in print — was 
{received with positive shouts of laughter and applause. Mr. Moore is well seconded by 
Mr. Walter Howard, the tambourine : he sang, " I'm a man who leads a wretched life," 
j with exquisite humour. The instrumental troupe are also very efficient performers: 
Mr. A. Nish proved his claim to be regarded as a finished violinist in an accompaniment 
in which he showed delicacy of tone and firmness of finger. Indeed, it would be impos- 
sible to leave St. James's Hall, after one of these performances, without a feeling of 
unmitigated satisfaction : such was the impression made upon us. 

Olympic Theatee. — This theatre will, notwithstanding a previous announcement, 

continue open until further notice, in consequence of the unabated success of" Clancarty." 

Death of Me. Milano. — We have to record, says the Ura, with much regret the 

decease of Mr. J. Milano, for so many years associated with our Metropolitan Theatres 

as ballet-master. Commencing as a dancer at the Grecian Saloon, Mr. Milano soon 

achieved distinction as a Harlequin of remarkable activity and grace, and for several 

I seasons he held this position at Drury-lane Theatre. As an arranger of ballets his 

: services were always in request, and the invention he displayed in this department gave 

him a repute which was widely acknowledged. His latest engagements have been at the 

I Surrey and at the Crystal Palace. A severe cold, received while he was fulfilling his 

I professional duties at the North Woolwich Q-ardens in the earlier part of the year, is 

I said to have hastened his death, which took place a few days ago. Mr. Milano was twice 

! married, his first wife being Miss Therese Cushnie, the popular dancer, who expired in 

August, 1857 ; and his second wife, Miss Minnie Sidney, the promising young actress, 

who only died in February last year. Mr. Milano was universally esteemed by the 

profession, and his kindness and courtesy to the ladies of the ballet whom he had to 

' instruct will be by all of them gratefully remembered. His age was about forty-nine. 

j Death of Mes. Eichaed Staemee. — The widow of the once celebrated Mr. Eichard 

jStarmer died on the 31st ult. at the Eoyal Dramatic College, Maybury. She had been 

; a re-elected inmate for the past four months, having left the College at the time of her 

nusband's decease there, three years since. Mrs. Starmer lived to an advanced age— 

, 85 years.

PROMENADE CONCERTS. 

"Where all the people came from, on Saturday evening, that assembled beneath the 
Ijautified dome of Covent Garden Theatre, is a matter that almost eludes our 
mprehension : the gorgeous decorations — including s )me very clever paintings, 
bounding with nymphs) grottos, and fountains — highly wrought chandeliers, a fanciful 
uffet, gilded tableu and chairs — a brilliantly carpeted floor, and a festooned roof — 
literally and generally couleur de rose — everything that could attract the eye and 
witch the other senses was present on Saturday. The sight of the elegant saloon into 
ich the theatre is converted would alone repay a visit ; but when to this is added a 
1 ogramme of great artistic excellence, under the control of a musician so popular as 
rve is, there can be no wonder if almost everybody who is in London should nightly 
semble within the walls of the theatre. The season was inaugurated, on Saturday, by 
performance (orchestral) of one verse of the National Anthem. The principal 
' iture in the programme was a symphony by the conductor, on the subject of the recent 
ihantee war. The solos were sung by Madlle. Bianchi, a singer of undoubted excellence, 
10 fully maintained the reputation she made during the last season at the theatre in 
lich these concerts are held ; Mr. Pearson, (an agreeable tenor), Mr. Carlton, (a rising 
ritone), and Mr. Lewis Thomas. The music of the symphony (for whish a better 
bject might certainly have been chosen and for which Herve is himself responsible) 
IS deservedly successful ; and received the most boisterous applause ; Madlle. 
jnati, a singer from the Russian capital, sang Rossini's " Una Voce," with 
eat sweetness and real grace : the encore she obtained — althou2;h we, as 
rule, greatly object to encores — was a well-deserved tribute to her clever 
ndering of the air ; Mr. Lewis Thomas received (with less reason,) a similar mark of 
Sii vour for his " Euddier than the Cherry ;" in fact the audience, as a body, was ready 
d eager to encore everything — a clear proof of the satisfaction it felt with all the 
^^^'rangements, and with the manner in which those arrangements were carried out. 
^jjie great treat to the more educated part of the audience was the violin playing of 
Wieniawski, whose talent secured him the most implicit attention : he played a 
ncerto on Grounod's " Faust," introducing all the principal airs, the arrangement of 
itii^^*^ Proved his claim to be considered a musician of sound theoretical and practical 
l^^j lowledge : all that is capable of being done on the instrument, this admirable player 
,:ji! "i6ved : his free and graceful bow-arm, his firmness of finger, his purity of tone, and 
■jii ace of execution — all point to the supposition that Wieniawski is at the very head of 
fesj! e violinists of his time. The band and chorus are excellent, and if we except the 
:|';'int of a little more strength in the upper voice-parts, we have nothing but justified 
1 ^'^^^"^''''^^^'^ *^ ^^P^'^s^ i^i I'^gard to the whole performance. The lessees (Messrs. 
■|itti) may well be congratulated upon the spirit they have shown, and also upon the 
ssession of a manager (Mr. ,T. Eussell) who has so greatly distinguished himself on 
yii. ^^ ^^ *^^ other occasions. In all the arrangements the talent of an experienced manager 

IS to be discovered.

THE NEW MUSICAL SOCIETY. 
OuB readers will remember that a few months ago, we drew attention to theestablish- 
ent of a new musical society — the precise object of which we were then unable to 

Mot ate : it has now taken an important but by no means easy step of fixing upon its title, 
ot only was it necessary to avoid the names of living societies, but to steer clear of 
lOse which, though practically dead, still linger in the memories of their founders and 

g lends ; and it was also essential to adopt such a title as would bring out the fact that 

' le new body is a learned society for discussion and for the reading of papers, and not 

ir the giving of concerts. It was at last decided, after some two hours' consideration, 

I describe it as " The Musical Association for the Investigation and Discussion of Sub- 

cts Connected with the Art and Science of Music," and by this name it will now be 

lown. Its meetings will commence in November, and among those who have already 

' I remised to contribute papers are Mr. Hullah, the Grovernment Musical Inspector of 

e:e Paining Colleges, and Dr. Stone. The society, or rather the association, as it must 
)W be termed, starts with a list of members which is strong in all its branches. The 
usical clergy are represented by Sir F. Gr. Ouseley, Mr. Helmore, Mr. Hawes, and 
'r. Troutbeck. The University professors of Edinburgh and Dublin, Mr. Hullah, and 
r. Maclean, represent the musical educationalists. Dr. Stone, Professor Pole, Mr. 

Sea 3dley Taylor, Professor Tyndall, and Sir Charles Wheatstone are known as investigators 
L musical science. The professional element is supplied by Messrs. Barnby, Dann- 

— suther, Hopkins, Macfarreu, Pauer, Prout, Salaman, and Sullivan, Dr. Monk, Dr. 
3 ]7"ylde, Dr. Stainer, and Sir J. Goss ; and lastly, amateurs are well in the field in the 

ersons of Mr. Grove, Mr. W. Chappell, and Mr. Prendergast. Of ladies there are 

ready several, including Lady Eastlake and Miss Zimmerman. Thus the association 

as made a good beginning; and many more eminent names will shortly be added. 

Deurt Lane Areangements. — The preliminaries for the Drury Lane Season are 

Dw completed. With the veteran tragedians, Mr. James Anderson and Mr. Creswick, a 

iri 3od artist, Mr. George Belmore, supported by others of less fame, Mr. Chatterton can 

•uit« ive a strong cast to any piece. Among the ladies we are glad to see Miss Lydia 

'oote, one of the best actresses on the stage, though showing to more advantage in a 

— nailer house than in so vast a space as old Drury. The season will commence with 
itila Amy Robsart," after which a month's run will give way to Mr. Andrew Halliday'3 
jiijt ersion of the " Talisman." 

nesi RoTAL Academy. — The winter Exhibition at the Royal Academy is expected to be 
"°"' splendid one. We hope so. Hitherto the affair has been very poor — indeed, a mere 

* j lilling- taking bit of business. Callcott and Etty are to be the lions we are told ; and 
.jjiii oubtless a great display could be made. Might we beg to see some real Constables ? 
thei fter the letter of the son about the Constables in the International, 
ii'^ e are anxious to make the acquaintance of a dozen real Constables. 

7e believe he had great merit from the true examples we have. 
ki lit that to copy him was to pantomime the great artist. We always hurried past the 

* S|- onstables in this year's Exhibition, shocked at the idea that they were a great master's 
''^' orks. Have we no better judges ? We believe not. 

^ Miss Marie Henderson, the favourite actress, announces her benefit at the Britannia 

,,j heatre for this evening. The well-known drama of " The Sea of Ice " will be one of 

le amusements this admirable actress has provided for ber numerous friends, in 

* 'hich she appears in the dual parts. She will afterwards represent Marguerite.

0. 16,321. THURSDAY, August 13, 1874. Price Id. 

tj Mr. John Milano. — We inadvertently copied a paragraph from The Era, in which 
Ib death of Mr. Milano was announced — we have great pleasure in contradicting the 
jji 3ort, which we are glad to say, was without foundation. Mr. Milano has our best 
(shes for his early recovery. 

The Peomenade Conceets. — The concerts at Covent Grarden Theatre have been 
^TTit^htly well attended. The programme of the opening night is repeated, and although 
■''^Eery thing went well then, the repetition of the various pieces improves their perform- 
;, 3ce, and the public have now an opportunity to enjoy good music played and sung by 
— (st-rate artistes. The management is particularly fortunate in its two sopranos, Madlles. 
I anchi and Benati — both are highly popular with the audience. 

Alexandea Theatee. — On Thursday, says The Era, the new Alexandra Theatre, 
'°^' mated in Park-street, Camden-town, and which was built and opened not more than 
\ . "o years ago, was sold by auction at the Mart, Tokenho use-yard, by Messrs. Furber, 
,3j^, "ice, and Furber. The property is leasehold, held under three diiferent leases, for an 
flh jiexpired term of thirty-three years, at an annual ground-rental of £151. The building 
oeUs described as being close to the well-known " Mother Redcap," and in the centre of 
"f [yery populous neighbourhood, in which there is no place of amusement adapted to 
'"„ e requirements of the respectable inhabitants. It was further stated that the theatre 
ithough so recently opened to the public, was well known as about the prettiest, most 
_) mfortable, best ventilated, and most convenient establishment in London, no expense 
■n iving been spared in its construction to provide a building eminently adapted for the 
"H-oduction of the legitimate drama. The building was also calculated to hold £150 at 
esent prices, and attention was drawn to the fact that the act-drop was the last work 
the kind executed by the late Mr. W. Telbin. It was added that there were 
«^'' ur bars, namely, to the pit, dress-circle, saloon, and gallery, which, together with a 
J^^ loon cellar under a portion of the pit, were fairly estimated to produce a rental of 
its ^9 ^ week. The auctioneer, in introducing the property, referred to the large outlay 
jasi hich had only been recently incurred in the construction of the building, stating that 
had cost upwards of £20,000. The biddings commenced with an offer of £8,000, 
— llowed by another offer of £8,500, and they rapidly rose by advances of £500 each bid, 
ato ^^^ ^^^ property stood at £11,000, when the biddings slackened. The theatre was 
jljltimately knocked down for £11,900. 

« The Haymarket will re-open the first week in October, with Mr. Sothern in Lord 
Bffl! lundreary. An adaptation, by Mr. Mortimer, of "Le Due Job," entitled "Lord 
*^ hurchmouse," is among promised novelties. 

iieai ^^^I'l'E Bae. — A friend of ours, who says that good nonsense is better than bad 

ttsnse, says also that " Fleet Street" has been disbarred : there is evidently something 

iigi rong about this gentleman's Temple. We are also indebted to him for the following 

lecdote which he, poor fellow, thinks both funny and amusing : we don't quite see it, 

!;, it insert it, that our readers may regard its author as an object of pity, and send him 

11 leir proxies for Earlswood : he says that a young sea-nymph of Folkestone, whose 

Jffther obtains a livelihood by ploughing the briny ocean, was asked by a School Board 

ivant if she knew the seasons of the year. The girl readily replied, " Yes, there are 

'ur — the mackerel season, the whiting season, the herring season, and the trawling 

Jason." She also replied that Moses was the meekest man ; and to the following 

uery — " Who was the meekest woman ?" answered, " There never was none." 

Ve need hardly say that the poor gentleman who seems so pleased to send us this, is a 

achelor— or else he would certainly know better than the sea-nymph of Folkestone.

SOUTH LONDON PALACE. 

p As this is the time of the year when everybody leaves home, and emulates that ever 
t be remembered poet who said, "They bid me seek in change of scene the charms 
jhich others see," we determined to commence our travels, and therefore after making 
pa'ur usual preparations, crossed the loater, in order that we might become acquainted with 
i.e southern shore, and pay our respects to those invisible monarchs, known by the names 
/ Speedy and Poole, and view their charmiug Palace. We very soon discovered 
j! e South London Palace was really a most splendid place, and we were 
ISO most agreeably surprised to find the audience far different from what we 
iid been led to expect from the stories of our Spanish barber. On our arrival at the 
'~^)rtal we were immediately conducted to a luxurious ottoman, upon which we seated 
J irselves, and having lighted our cigar, and ordered our refreshment, were ready 
, I enjoy the entertainment which might be provided for our amusement. 
J he programme commenced with the overture to " Stadella," capitally performed by the 
Fetiind, under the direction of Mr. D. Spillane. This was followed by Mr. C. Williams, 
IK le comic vocalist; and then Miss Annie Wildey appeared in an entertainment, entitled 
^'Red Riding Hood," the plot of which we were unable to unravel, but as this lady is a 
Vipital burlesque actress, and possesses a good voice, she earned the well merited applause 
! ] ■ the audience, and is a great acquisition to any music hall. "We then heard Mr. Charles 
S aurie, another comic vocalist ; the Sisters Weston, the American artistes ; the Dashing 
►unbar ; Fred Foster, and Miss Grace Harrington, an excellent soprano, possessing 
" voice of great compass and power. We also witnessed the very extraordinary and 
aring performance of the brothers Roussillions, and then gazed upon the grand 
lythological ballet of " Pluto," which is placed upon the stage in a most eff'ective 
lanner. Madlles. Rosa, Ada, and Le Brun, three very graceful dancers, aud the 
antomimic artistes, Cyrus Bell, Will Orkins, Stevens, and Signer Pusse impersonate 
jj le principal characters, and are ably supported by a corps de ballet of very 
!i„retty girls. The assembling of the gods and goddesses is a very charming 
ffiibleau, and reflects great credit on Madame Collier, from whose prolific brain 
tis le ballet was invented and constructed. It has now. been performed for some time, 
ud we should imagine, by the enthusiasm displayed by the audience, it is very likely to 
- Jmain in the programme for many months to come. The clever acrobatic performance 
itufthe talented Matthews family, brought the evening's entertainment to a close. We 
li'ere given to understand that it is the intention of the management to introduce selec- 
tions from various operas, on the same scale as those which made the Canterbury and 
Jj >xford so popular when under the management of Mr. Charles Morton. England is 
, ecoming every day a more musical nation, and as we have lately been surfeited with 
slf-styjed Lion and Lioness comiques, and Kings and Queens of the air, we fully believe 
hat good music, entrusted to good artistes, will be an immense attraction, and fully 
emunerate the manager for the extra outlay. We believe that Mr. Robert Grreen 
nd Miss Grrace Harrington are already engaged ; this is certainly a good beginning. 
The Minsteel and the Baeeistee. — G-eorge Clark,, the negro minstrel, was 
everely interrogated by a barrister, who wished to break down his evidence. " Tou 
re in the negro minstrel business, I believe?" — "Yes, sir," — "Isn't that 
ather a low calling ?" — " I don't know but what it is, sir," " but it is so much better 
ban my father's, that I am rather proud of it."—" What was your father's calling ?" 
-" He was a barrister," replied Clark, in a tone of regret that put the court in a roar.

M MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 




S[o. 16,323. SATURDAY, August 15, 1874. Price Id. 

New Opera bt Offenbach. — Mr. D'Oyly Carte, the musical agent, has entered 

^ ifco a contract with Offenbach on behalf of Mr. Gt. Wood (Messrs. Cramer and Co.) to 
!\'ite a grand spectacular opera bouffe, especially for this country. The piece will be 

pefi<mpleted during the autumn, and will be produced at one of the principal London 
leatres at Christmas. The libretto will be by Mr. H. B. Parnie, and the subject is the 
ipular story of " Whittiugton and his Cat." M. Offenbach will personally attend the 

vjht rehearsals, and superintend the production of the piece. The admirers of the lighter 
{hool of music will, we are sure, welcome this piece of authentic information. 
" Love not " at a Wedding. — Playing of church organs at weddings is coming to 
one of the fine arts. One organist, after waiting a tedious time for the belated bride, 
venged himself by giving to the audience, " Love Not," with every variation and on 
ery stop-conbination he could think of. What shall we say to the new fashion that 
coming in — borrowed from the bad custom of the theatres — of following words 

3,[j ' special pathetic or rhetoric effect with a low orchestral accompaniment ? 

,Mti Q-eeman Musicians. — The recent annual meeting of German musicians (Tonkunstler- 

1 diersammlung) took place at Halle, near Leipzig. A great number of distinguished 

\S tists arrived from all parts of Germany. The principal works that were produced 

^' ere not compositions of German musicians, for the first was Berlioz' Eequiem, the 

gjiher Liszt's " Faust " Symphony. 
Paris Conservatoire. — The competition at the Conservatoire of Paris for comedy 
id tragedy took place this week, but without leading to the award of any prize for 
le latter. 

Theatrical Prize. — The Russian Government has offered two prizes, one of 24,000 
ancs, the other of 8,000 francs, for the best and second best design for a theatre 
r Odessa. 

A New Grand Opera. — M. Massenet has just terminated the music of a grand 
)era, in three acts and five tableaux, words by M. Louis Gallet, and called " Le Roi de 

;, ahore." A pendant to the " Marie-Madeleine," by the same composer, will be heard 

a lis winter, being a mystery, in two parts, entitled " Eve." 

Gregorian Chants. — Another curious development of music in connection with 

- ranee just now is a demand, addressed by an enthusiast in Gregorian to the Arch- 
shop of Paris, for authoritative uniformity in harmonising the " tones." 
Sunday Amusements. — Thirteen " sacred concerts " were given in New York city 
st Sunday at the various halls which open on that day. 

English Musicians Abroad. — Hugh Pierson is looked upon in Saxony as one of the 
3st modern composers. Herr J. Schuberth states that a series of Pierson's instru- 

Ijiental works is being published. 
A REVIVAL in Paris. — No new piece have been given at the Paris theatres during 

;ejie past week, but at the Theatre Erangais there has been a revival of Sedaine's 
Gageur Imprevue." 

Mozart's Portrait. — The famous portrait of Mozart, by Battoni, in the possession 
P Professor Ella, has been sold to an amateur for £200. 

EiCKMANswoRTH HORTICULTURAL SociETY.— By kind permission of Lord Ebury, 
le president of this society, a garden party and promenade took place in Moor Park, 
-ickmansworth, on Wednesday. There was a large gathering of members and friends, 
tnongst whom were some of the noble president's family. The amusement embraced 
erformances by the band of the Watford Union Boys, Punch and Judy, minstrels, 
onjuring, &c.

4 MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 



h. 16,324. MONDAY, August 17, 1874. Price Id. 



H SKETCHES OF LIVING ACTORS AND ACTRESSES.— NO VI. 

riE substance of the following memoir is taken from The Bow Bells : Mr. Neville's 

.cat up the ladder of fame has been rapid, for he is still comparatively young, having 

( born in Manchester on the 20th day of June, 1837. No other instance occurs (in 

jtime, at all events) where talent has been so justly appreciated, if we except his 

j|i( d and associate, Mr. Eobson, and who will deny that he was a worthy competitor, 

■^ *; )ugh in an entirely different school? Jiobson and Neville made the Olympic 

]tus ; but the former did not live to see Henry Neville's greatest success on the same 

—ids. Mr. Neville made his first appearance at the Lyceum, under the management 

adame Vestris, in October, 1860, where he was received with great favour by the 

\'ues of this very fashionable house. He afterwards played for a short season at the 

I ty little Operetta House in Edinburgh. Messrs. Emden and Eobson immediately 

'ed him a lucrative engagement at the Olympic Theatre which he accepted. Here 

nmediately made a position as the hero in " Jack of all Trades," and that capital 

aUia, " Camilla's Husband," entirely different in character yet both nevertheless 

|;rly rendered. Mr. Neville's greatest success, however, was in " The Ticket-of- 

re Man," produced in May, 1863, and played for 409 nights without intermission ; 

out detracting from that which is due to Mr. Neville's associates in the piece — and 

'e was much, very much to admire in the wbole cast — yet even his fellows will not 

_Jse to grant that Mr. Neville's acting in the part of ^o5(?r(! Brierlj/ was most masterly 

fine. The character of Rohert Brierly, was sufficient in itself to stamp him as an 

r of the highest class. After his engagement at the Olympic had expired, Mr. 

ille again returned to the Adelphi. At the present time Mr. Neville is back once 

n to the scene of his former triumphs — the Olympic — not alone, however, as actor, 

as lessee and manager. In this arduous and responsible position he has, as yet, been 

"'^iiently successful ; and the crowds which nightly attend his pretty and fashionable 

J ie is a sufficient proof that his exertions to please his patrons and the public are 

ijtijlf appreciated. Mr. Neville commenced his management of the Olympic on the 4th 

bctober last, with Mr. Byron's comedy of" Sour Grapes." The piece is well written 

_J amusing ; but had it not been for the acting of Mr. Neville and others, we doubt 

jj ■ much whether it would have been so successful as it has proved. Indeed, the 

j]',li ur with which it was received was mainly attributable to the excellence of the acting.- 

pins versatility as a performer is prominently displayed when he assumes the lounging 

imiii! , the broad dialect, and the boorish manners of a Lancashire farmer's labourer. 

e!3or Neville was not intended for the stage ; report says his ancestors were army men, 

*i " that he was intended for that profession ; but the fascination of the stage was 

'j \ listible. As early as 1852 we find him eagerly practising, with a determination of 

iiij g to the highest point of popularity. In 1867 his love of the army induced him to 

the St. Greorge's Eifles ; and with his customary perseverance he rendered signal 

jlii, ice to the corps — recruited nearly the whole of a company, fully drilled and equipped 

pi marched them into Old Burlington House to " See the Conquering Hero Comes." 

jorl afterwards find him the winner of the highest prizes, carrying off in one year the 

Jbe Stars and One Hundred Guinea Challenge Vase. He rose to senior lieutenant ; 

"ni the extra Governmental demands rendered it impossible for him to follow the two 

easions. 

Ciss Emmeline Doelln-g. — This young lady, so favourably known in the Provinces, 
been engaged by Mr. Chatterton, and will make her first appearance this 'evening 
irs. "White in the farce of that name.

Loyal Polytechnic Instittttion. — The extraordinary success which attended the 

[peformance of Dr. Croft's entertainment, " Sir Walter Ealeigh's Queer Dream," at 

;h Polytechnic, naturally caused the patrons of this popular institution to look to the 

•ae source for further amusement. They were amply gratified last week by the pro- 

lition of a new musical eccentricity, entitled " Zitella." It is founded on the nursery 

Bj^nd of " Cinderella and the Slipper," and affords scope for the production of all those 

jhpming effects peculiar to this place of amusement. The musical portion of the 

iEprtainment was ably executed by Mr. Seymour Smith, Mdlle. Carlotta Feedez, and 

ih| Misses Mabel Mostyn and Lilie Bartlett. The pictures, scenery, and costumes were 

-ji|it successes, and on the fall of the curtain the whole of the performers were loudly 

-giljlauded. Dr. Croft, the managing director, was also warmly congratulated upon the 

^i^ess of the new entertainment. Some brilliant experiments were made the same 

i'njning with the new electric machine erected in the large hall. The explanatory 

Evure was given by Mr. King, the lecturer of the Institution. 

:^if GLisH Opera in London. — Efforts are being made to cover the ground which was 

fitched from under Herr Rosa's feet in such a melancholy manner, and to establish 

eii English opera in London. There never was a time when there was at the disposal 

witnanagers a larger supply of competent and well-endowed English vocalists qualified 

I It abour successfully in the operatic world than there is at the present. Just now, 

','nfeover, there is good opportunity for securing a house well adapted for English 

i|ra — the Princess's Theatre. We hope this opportunity will be made the most of. 

i^i have for years been advocating such a project both in this and other journals. 

J the press in a body, now take up the subject. 

~ ;,V^E chronicled a few days ago the death of Mr. Charles Emery, an artist in connection 

I j«ih one of the illustrated journals, while attempting to save a child from drowning. 

Correspondent writes us that the deceased was only 23 years of age, and the main 

.t)port of a father and brother. " Asa friend of his " (continues our correspondent) "I 

M anxious to raise a small subscription to be employed in some suitable manner, that 

■^!^|uld not jar on the feelings of his friends and relations. The form that this should 

-;p might safely be left to the gentlemen named below, who have kindly offered to head 

iVe subscription list. Subscriptions may be paid to the account of the Emery Fund, 

^dion Bank, Chancery-lane, or to Mr. Charles Roberts, 4i7, Fleet-street ; Mr. W. L. 

[omas, the OrapMc office ; Mr. William Ingram, M.P., the Illustrated London News 

"^'ce ; Lady Barker, editor ai Evening Hours ; Mr. M. W. Ridley, Mr. Q-odfrey Durand, 

)jifl Mr. Joseph Swain. 

ts 1 BENEFIT is announced for Thursday next, at the Elephant and Castle Theatre, in 
^"i of the funds of the Railway Servants' Orphanage. The charity is most deserving, 
^^il we hope the exertions of the committee will be crowned with success. 
jij'EiCHAED C(EUE DE LioN." — Mr. Arthur Mathison, the author of the original 
#:etto of " The Talisman," has been engaged by Mr. Chatterton to play the part of 
m Minstrel, Blondel, in Mr. Andrew Halliday's dramatised version of the novel, which 
\1 be produced at Drury- lane Theatre in September. In the opera, as written by 
ifilfe, the part of Blonde! was included, and was destined for Mr. Mathison. The role 
5iHs omitted when the opera was given at Her Majesty's Opera. 

'^^'Me. Geoege Conquest, of the Grecian Tjieatre, takes his annual benefit on the 27th

M MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 



51- 



So. 16,326. AVEDNESDAY, August 19, 1874. Price Id. 

T EOYAL MUSIC HALL, HOLBORN. 

' Mb. Sweaset's programme contains the names of the following artistes : — Mr. Pat 

orri, the Sisters Claremont, Mr. Herbert Campbell, Miss Osborne Armstrong and 

Idlle. Ellise, those clever children Elspa and Sillo, who astonished us with their wonder- 

:d performance on the flying trapeze, Miss Annie "Wildey in her charming operatic 

itertaiument of " Eed Eiding Hood," the talented Brothers Eaynor, in their laughable 

.terludes, Lupino comic troupe, and McDermott, the Scamp. This latter gentleman 

IS been the cause of quite a sensation in this hall. It appears that he sings a song 

_ fensive to Mr. Odger and his admirers, and they very naturally hiss the singer, and 

_, ley not only do this but have distributed bills amongst the audience containing wretched 

* oggrel rhyme against McDermott. As a matter of course Mr. Sweasey could not 

G: ilow this sort of conduct to take place in his respectable establishment, and therefore he 

ad the malcontents expelled, and a police case has been the result. It should be 

-■ Qmembered that Mr. Odger was a shoemaker e'er he discovered that by turning his 

f.^ ttention to the rights and wrongs of the working man he could become master of a 

5,. |iuch more lucrative business. So he discarded his last and became a politician ; a true 

ater of kings and a fervent lover of a republic ; one who loved to enfold himself in 

-pe flag of liberty, and exclaim — no civil list — no taxes — no work — who held his monster 

I leetings at The Hole in the Wall, and ofiered himself as a representative in parliament, 

, )rgetting, no doubt, that gentlemen, as a rule, do not associate with snobs. Now every 

ne must know that when once a man steps out of private life to become a public 

haracter he at the same time becomes a public target, which sooner or later is certain 

J be pierced with the arrows of envy or ridicule. Mr. McDermott's song of " The 

nob " is capitally written and capitally rendered, and surely if Mr. Odger thinks it no 

rime to lecture on the happiness of living under a republic, and the great benefit it 

rould be to England, he should not lose his temper because his ideas on this subject 

.re held up to redicule in a comic song, sang by a comic singer at the Royal. "We do 

lot exactly agree with the remarks that fell from Mr. Flowers when the case of assault 

vas brought before him, but we presume he is much better acquainted with the law , 

Coin ihen we are, for we should have imagined that, as Mr. Sweasey held his house under a 

<& nagistrate's licence, he is perfectly justified in expelling any one that makes themselves 

>bnoctious to his customers, and if he is unable to do so himself he is empowered to call in 

- ihe aid of the police. 

' t| Miss Peice, the celebrated costumier, of 299, Strand, has made all the dresses for 
d he new opera of "The Broken Branch," which is to be produced on Saturday next, 
it'Ht the Opera Comique. 

' The programme of the one hundred and fifty-first meeting of the three choirs of 

,j liVorcester, Hereford, and Gloucester, is out, and shows some deviation from the long 

jc^jstablished order of the proceedings of the festival week. The festival is held at 

nijal-loucester this year, and occupies the week commencing September 7th. The names 

,pf the principals engaged have already been given, and the programme sets forth the 

"jjjrder of the sacred and secular performances. The festival sermon will be preached by 

Jpanon Barry on the Friday evening, instead of on the first day as heretofore. 

'P Mes. John Wood is, says the Hornet, in negotiation with a Calcutta association ^to 

I take out a St. James's company for the winter, but the project will probably be abandoned 

fin favour of her usual autumn tour, for which arrangements are now being made with 

■•: provincial managers. She has secured the sole provincial right of Byron's " American 

Lady," among other novelties.

KEFLECTIONS AMONGST THE TREES AT EASTBOURNE. 

SOJOUEK at tlie seaside gives a little leisure to think of home matters, and very near 

sea, unusually surrounded by high verdant and leafy trees, we employ a little of 

,t leisure in reviewing some of our past labours, con amove. The closing of the 

atres, generally, at this time makes the editor's labours light ; and a recurrence to 

fcVee or four is all that it is possible to accomplish. First of all a second visit, just 

bfore we came away, to the Lyceum is suggestive of some very pleasant reminiscences — 

t3 ever-fresh " Grand Duchess," in the hands of Miss Soldene, recurs to our memory 

iia highly favourable light — we think of her admirable voice — a voice of extraordinary 

-leinpass — of her dashing — or rather daring — mode of using it — her clever feats of vocal 

: ' dbamentation, and her fresh and vigorous acting : her commanding figure, and her 

sneral accomplishments : then we recur to Miss Clara Yesey, who has made a rapid 

c d important advance in the position she holds in her profession : her quiet grace, and 

amirable form, her unobtrusive and gentle manner — all admirably adapted to the 

i„jbuirements of the character she so skilfully embodies ; the capital tenor-singing of Mr. 

OrJiverley, whose smooth and resonant quality of voice, adds greatly to a sensible mode of 

^ iling it : he acts, too, with an evident gusto. Mr. Marshall is also a valuable addition. 

t the cast, and, if possible, adds also to the fame he achieved as one of the Q-end'armea 

i " Genevieve." To Mr. Wallace, who has so well accomplished everything relating to 

ie stage management, and who acts so well throughout the opera, great praise must be 

{^arded. And what shall we say, or rather what shall we not say, of Mr. Eosenthal, 

-I th his natural and exuberant fun, if a little redundant, still the more acceptable, 

1 cause so genuine ; we offer him our best thanks for one of the most amusing and 

imic sketches that have for some time come within our observation ; he acts and. sings 

.:e a thorough artiste — a position we have no difficulty in assigning to him. Then the 

;.mirable scenery — the gorgeous dresses — all of more than ordinary goodness of quality 

•all fresh, too, from the hand of their clever producer, and carrying into Miss Price's 

ork-room a justification for no ordinary compliment. Mr. Morton, the manager, and 

iss Soldene, the directress, may well congratulate themselves on the talent of all who 

irround them, and on the great success which they, aided by their talent, have achieved. 

Te cordially and conscientiously recommend the public, who are now in London, not 

- ) neglect a performance from which they are sure to derive so much enjoyment, so 
uch real pleasure. In consequence of the great success of "The Grand Duchess," the 
)era will be played every evening until Saturday, the 29th August. On Monday, 
le 81st, "La JPille de Madame Angot," in which Miss Emily Soldene will personate 
[adame Lange, will be performed. 

The Majj and Doa Fight DEAMA.-^The story of the Hanley man and dog fight in 

s dramatised version was produced at the Hanley Theatre on Monday night. A 

•owded audience assembled to witness the performance. The piece represents a, 

. )mmissioner of a Transatlantic journal on a visit to this country in search of a 

:' lew sensation for his paper. Notwithstanding the proverbial Yankee 'cufceness, 

e is hoaxed by two Hanleyites. A fight between a ■ man and a boy disguised a», a 

- og is planned, and its representation in this scene ie an amusing pifece 
f burlesque. It is, however, greatly ex^-ggerated by the , commissipner ia 
is account of it, and he accordingly gets into ti?o^b!l,ed, waters over i^;, A vindication of 
ae town brings the piece to an appropriate conclusion. i.rj i>;>")(rj iijj,;iifJ/

HAMILTON'S EXCURSIONS TO AMERICA.— AGRICULTURAL HALL. 

![iosE people that have neither time, money, or inclination to visit distant lands, in 

'cr to become acquainted with their cities, picturesque scenery, and the customs of 

3:..f inhabitants, had better do the next best thing, and that is pay a visit to Mr. 

iiilton, who is now located at the Agricultural Hall, Islington, and inspect his 

ihsal panorama, " Across the Continent," they will find it a most instructive and 

{3ing exhibition. Mr. Hamilton meets us at the Euston Station, where, as soon aa 

ongine is attached to the train, we start for Liverpool. We are then shown Lime 

aet, with its noble hotel, the Alexander Theatre, St. George's Hall, which is one of 

amost beautiful buildings in England, and the famous "Washington Hotel, the 

1 ezvous for all Americans visiting this country. Mr. Hamilton then conducts us to 

ji i( anding stage, which has recently be destroyed by fire, and we then go on board the 

riti: iatic, one of the finest steamers of the White Star Line, which, after a very pleasant 

ige, arrives at New York. We at once fix ourselves at the St. Nicholas Hotel, and 

a stroll down the broadway, mix with the other swells, and soon become 

fainted with hotel life, and then walk into the Eifth Avenue and see 

the upper ten deport themselves after dinner. In due time we go 

ing and sleighing in the central park, witness the procession of New York firemen, 

upon a friend at the Metropolitan Hotel, and go to Niblo's Theatre and Winter 

den. We are taken to St. Patrick's Cathedral, which Mr. Hamilton orders to be 

' :,ininated in honour of our visit. Having become acquainted with all the principal 

(68 in New York we are taken to the Hudson River, the Catskill Mountains, the 

_-as of Niagara, Barnegat Lighthouse, New Jersey, Lake Q-eorge, and Taratoga Spring, 

T mn as the Western Scarborough, where more attention is paid to dress than to the 

* iprs. We then are shown an American steamboat, which we should think for com- 

t cannot be surpassed in the world, it appears to be a perfect floating palace. We 

i; New Orleans, laugh at a plank dance, learn how they plant, gather, and pack cotton 

'the English market. We then find ourselves on the banks of the Ohio, make 

' Saaintance with the boatmen, and nerve ourselves with a bottle of Catauba wine 

^pre we venture upon the dismal swamp, or ascend the white mountains. We quickly 

tijjj ourselves at the Omaha Station, and the Pacific Railway takes us over the great 

jirie. On our return we visit Washington, see the Senate House, go to the president's 

-ji'ption, and make a call at the White House, the panorama concluding with an 

Jgorical tableau representing the G-enius of America. During the progress of the 

j.^orama various artistes come upon the stage and sing a number of songs appropriate 

ffiJlhe scenes which are before us. It is really an exhibition which every body should 

isearonize ; the pictures are charmingly painted and some of the dioramic effects marvel- 

M' The hall is crowded every evening, and we must congratulate Mr. Hamilton on 

r^ljhaving provided such an enjoyable entertainment. 

,j |.'he distribution of the prizes to the pupils of the Conservatoire de Musique at Paris 
Jfche Minister of Fine Arts has been accompanied, as usual, by the bestowal of honours 
J Jjone of the most eminent of the teaching stafi", many of whom have received similar 
JlJi'ks of appreciation in previous years. M. Ernest Deldevez — who has just been 
jMied a Chevalier of the Legion of Honour — is the professor in the orchestral class of 
1 Conservatoire, and the chef d'orchestre at the Opera, and at the concerts of the 
'^iservatoire. He was a pupil at the institution in his earlier years, aud ia the com-

ROSHERVILLE GARDENS. 

We fully believe that at least one half of the inhabitants of London have at some 
jriod of their life visited Eosherville ; it has either been accomplished when a babe 
ewling and puking in its nurse's arms, or as a schoolboy with shining morning face, 
ho likes a holiday amidst swings and Aunt Sallies, or as a lover sighing like a furnace 
hilst he unveils his heart to the pi'etty maiden that leans upon his arm as they wander 
.rough the romantic walks leading to the tower, or seek the home of the gipsey to 
arn their future destiny. We have certainly never met with anyone that has not been 
E-osherville ; can this be owing to the large posters which we are for overseeing that 
11 us it is the only place to spend a happy day? We suppose it must be so, for we 
mnot resist the temptation ourselves, aud as often as we read the bills telling us where 
ue happiness is to be found, we make up our mind that at the first opportunity we 
ill board a saloon boat and pay another visit to these delightful gardens. We may 
3 thought plebeian but Rosherville has always a charm for us. We like the paddle 
)wn the riv^er ; we like our early dinner at the hotel ; and we like to inhale the per- 
.me of the lovely flowers as we take our stroll through the gardens. AV"e like to watch 
.. Franconi, the master of the ceremonies, while he introduces the Sfcephons to the 
aphnes, that they may be able to glide through a waltz or romp a quadrille to the 
spiring music of Mr. Alfred Lee's capital band. There is no lack of amusement pro- 
ded for the visitors to Rosherville. In the al fresco theatre they may witness a 
)mic ballet, and in the regular theatre the sprightly operetta of the " Rose of Auvergne," 
hich is now being played by Miss Rose Armitage, C. Saunders, and Mr. Charles Hey- 
ood, (who, it may be remembered, made such a hit last year at the Surrey Q-ardens as 
)hn Styx, in Mr. Vandervell's opera bouffe of " Eurydice"), which is followed by the 
Teaming farce of " The Clockmaker's Hat." At dusk the gardens are brilliantly 
iuminated, and a grand display of fireworks takes place. The metropolitan visitors can 
se everything and yet have ample time to catch the train. We need scarcely inform 
IT readers that ofttimes on our journey to Charing Cross we have heard whisperings 
om pouting lips murmur " Oh ! What a happy day I've spent." 

Amusements at Beighton. — The Aquarium Terrace G-ardens and Stage are becoming 
jry popular, and justify the enterprise of the management in forming them. The 
.rectors have wisely resolved to charge a small sum for admission to them when the 
.quarium is open at sixpence, but on shilling days they will be open free of charge to 
Ipatrons of the Aquarium. The latest additions to the tanks comprise a fine batch of 
oose barnacles, which were picked up on the beach. They are attached to a piece of 
ood 3ft. long, and when first taken measured 13ft. in length. — Mr. Burnett, an American 
amorous character entertainer, assisted by a lady " emotional " reader, commenced a 
lort season at the Q-rand Concert-hall on Monday night. — Mr. George Honey and the 
lynes have concluded their fortnight of comedy, burlesque, and ballet at the Theatre 
loyal, on Monday night Mr. Hermann Vezin, supported by a company selected from 
le Gaiety and Olympic Theatres, appeared in the drama of " Cora," which will be 
:>ntinued until further notice, — The change of weather from the wind and rain of last 
I'eek to the soft zephyr-like breezes and dry warmth of the last two or three days has 
reatly encouraged the excursion traffic to Brighton. On Sunday over 6000 persons 
ame down in the cheap trains from London, and Monday the town was also well filled 
ith visitors for the day. 

Statue of the Queen. — The statue of Her Majesty, which has been sculptured by 
Ie. Noble for the adornment of St. Thomas's Hospital has arrived at that institution.

REFLECTIONS AMONGST THE TREES AT EASTBOURNE. 

IE appearance of Mr. Webster, as Eichard Pride, in his own drama, " Janet Pride," 
ds an opportunity to sketch his long dramatic career which has extended in the 
[•opolis alone, over half a century. In one of the numbers of this publication, dated 
, we find the name of Mr. Webster, as an actor at Drury Lane. We have recently 
a sketch of his long career, but we cannot forbear, whilst admiring his forcible 
g as the hero of the Adelphi drama, now being performed at the Princess's, from 
ng that Mr. Webster owes his popularity not to dramas of the class to which this 
ngs, but to a far higher range of cliaracter : as a Shaksperian actor, in the Clown 
especially, he has had no superior, and both in comedy, and in dramas requiring 
h of feeling and mental penetration and appreciation, Mr. Webster has always 
■nguished himself. In the " School for Scandal," we have seen Mr. Webster in 
'ly half the characters : his Sir Peter Teazle was a clever performance ; his Moses 
dmirable one ; his Sir Benjamin Backbite amusing and well-concived, and his Crab- 
bears comparison with any now existing or by-gone. Then again in the line which 
elder Emery, in his time made his own — his Farmer Ashfield is a fine and natural 
ormance ; his Dandie Dinmont an incomparable one, and Dominie Sampson, in the 
e opera, gave him scope to show his versatility. When Mr. Webster retired from 
Haymarket, some eight and twenty years ago, he left many of the characters he 
made at that theatre, without a representative — notably Sergeant Austerlitz in " The 
d of Croissey," a capital little drama by the late Mrs. G-ore, in which the features 
ktr. Webster's acting were firmly and fully developed ; but not only in such parts 
hese, has he left his mark ; his Graves in Bulwer Lytton's " Money," and his Geavis, 
be same author's " Lady of Lyons " are the best of our time. We are glad again 
nd Mr. Webster still amongst our leading actors ; and when he told us, the other 
that he found it difficult to retire from a profession which he loved, we readily 
jred into his feelings ; so wishing that he may live long to enjoy the good he is likely 
chieve in his forthcoming and final provincial tour, we close our reflections upon the 
formances of one of the most clever and versatile actors of modern times. 
Te. W. Holland, the popular Proprietor of North Woolwich Gardens, takes his 
ual benefit to-day and to-morrow. The programme will be both attractive and 
shsive, and we notice particularly that Mr. h\ Green's opera bouife " Carrot and Pa- 
with the famous Payne Family, is to be revived in honour of the occasion. A 
)it from the last Surrey Pantomime is also to be introduced, and, what with farces 
fireworks, balloon ascents and bands, and other good things too numerous to men- 
, the success achieved should be of an unprecedented nature. 
hss Selina Dolabo will appear at the Lyceum Theatre on Monday next, in her 
:inal role of Clairette, in " La Fille de Madame Angot." 
Te. Wtbeet Eeeve on the 23rd prox. leaves England for Canada and the United 
;es on a prolonged tour. Our readers will be aware of the flattering terms in which 
vas spoken of by the American Press during his visit last winter. His success then, 
the great inducements ofiered, have decided his return. Mr. Reeve will produce 
new four-act dramas in the States, and has secured the services of Miss Edith Gray, 
)K)se recent successes we have had the pleasure of chronicling. 

Ie. W. H. Noetok sailed for America on the 20th instant, per the City of E.ichmoud. 
fl: services have been secured for the season at the Boston Theatre. 

Spldees AND Plies" is the title of a new sensational drama, specially written for

DRURY LANE THEATRE —MEETING OP RENTERS. 

'lE annual general meeting of the renters or debenture holders in the Theatre Royal 

rry-]ane was held on Saturday in the saloon of the theatre, Captain Marcus Sharpe 

le chair. The report of the sub-committee, read by Mr. Deputy Tegg, was repeated 

abstance in the report of the committee, which was read by Mr. James Eobins, the 

iCetary , which stated that the accounts for the year ending June 30th, 1874, duly 

uted bv Messrs. Ricketts and Crombie, showed that the gross receipts, including the 

vivace of 1527Z. 6s. 5d. on the 30th of June, 1874, amounted to 12,743Z. Os. 9d., and 

-\dotal of the payments to 10,158Z. 16s. 2d., leaving a balance at the banker's of 2584L 

i.rd. The receipts comprised 425Z. paid by the lessee for repairs, 2951. for 59 extra 

_>iormances in 1872 and 1873, 650Z. for extension of term of lease to August 15, 1873, 

il6500Z. rent for year ending the 18th August, 1874. The payments comprised 1372/. 

Jiid., four quarters' rent to the Duke of Bedford; 622Z. lis. 7d., rates and taxes ; 

;1H. 12s. 5d., on account of fire mains ; 148/. 16s., upholstery ; 335/. 12s., builders; 

^^5 . 14s., decorations; and 2675/. to the trustees of the new renters. The report of 

'0 Marsh Nelson, the architect to the proprietors, informed them of the large outlay 

I he theatre during the year for repairs, decorations, and furnishing, and that the 

;« tre had again been converted into an Italian opera house ; that on the Vinegar-yard 

f te the Old Drury Tavern had been repaired and improved by the new tenant ; 

D that the leases of Nos. 10 and 18 having expired at Midsummer last, those 

^ les had been immediately relet. No. 6 had also been repaired and let. 

;o the means taken to secure the theatre from the ravages of fire, after referring to 

~ mention of this subject in his report of last year, the architect now reported that 

1 1 last autumn contracts were entered into with the New River Company for a 

Tate high-service main for the exclusive use of the theatre on the northern or 

jl at Russell-street frontage, and with Messrs. J. and F. May, engineers, for one of 

le; )roposed upright mains (from the Water Company's new main in the street) through 

interior of the theatre to the roof, with connections on the several floors. The 

It had been most satisfactory, for at all times of the day and night a stream of 

3r could be thrown over the cowl, which is on the highest point of the roof, by 

fireman on duty above. The remainder of the upright mains and connectione 

uht, therefore, now be carried out ; and when completed they would with those works 

pdously executed add greatly to the security of the building. — The reports were 

Jiived and adopted, after some observations by various speakers on the precautions 

im against fire. The renters' committee, consisting of Captain Sharpe, Sir F. W. 

iscolt, and Messrs. Richards, Jonas Levy, and H. V. Pyefinch, was then elected, and 

b. answer of Dr. Beaumaris's widow to the letter of condolence from the committee 

Bier loss was ordered to be entered on the minutes. — A long discussion afterwarde 

ot place on the memorial of Mr. Robins for an increase of his salary as secretary from 

5;o 100 guineas, which increase was ultimately recommended to the trustees. A 

0) of thanks to Mr. Chatterton, Mr Mapleson, and the chairman closed the 

ffjeedings. 

' lis Royal Highness the Peince op Wales, attended by his suite, honoured the 
•imenade Concerts at Covent-garden with a visit on Saturday evening. 

HEiB Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess op Edinburgh honoured the

HAYMARKET THEATRE. 

i? Madlle. Beatrice has commenced a short season at this theatre : and she haa 

(ilisted a troop of supporters with whom she revolves around the United Kingdom — 

])w thrilling audiences in Aberdeen with the bitter remorse of tlie giddy " Erou-Frou," 

]pw exciting P^xeter or Bristol with the persevering struggles of the heroine of "Nos 

iitimes." The fame of M. Octave Feuillet's latest production, " Le Sphinx " and the 

oath throes of Mdlle. Croisette in the part of the mysterious Blanche de Chelles were 

])t likely to escape Mdlle. Beatrice's attention. Accordingly, a version of this comedy- 

\ cama, made especially for her by Mr. Campbell Clarke, was produced the other day at 

le Theatre Royal, Edinburgh, with much success. Scarcely a fortnight has elapsed 

lice then ; but it is no part of Mdlle. Beatrice's system to linger about the scene of 

- ;r triumps, and already "The Sphinx " is removed to London. Every reader of the 

l^pwspapers knows the story ofthe mysterious lady who flirts with many only to conceal 

Ipr passion for one ; who, ostensibly scorned and repelled by the object of her secret 

J:]ission, wrests from him in a critical hour his secret — that he loves her in return — and 

'-"'00, finally overwhelmed with remorse, destroys herself to rid the woman who was once 

It dearest friend of the blighting influence of her presence. Mr. Campbell Clarke has 

Imdled the story delicately, reflecting the polished dialogue of the original with much 

I ill, and made little change in the situations beyond that of toning down the fiery 

..idour of that sudden revelation of mutual passion in the bearing of the injured wife 

jKiich gave to the close of the third act — as performed at the Theatre Fran^aise, and 

|ore recently at the Princess's Theatre — so powerful an efteet. As the heroine Mdlle. 

-Isatrice fairly moved the audience in the scene at the " Duke's tarn," and in the final 

iath scene, in which she adopts with laudable moderation the famous points of Mdlle. 

:oisette. In these and other of the serious situations the efi'ect was greatly enhanced 

'■ the somewhat blunt but really powerful acting of Miss L. Moodie, who as Berthe de 

kvigny won from the audience well-merited applause. On the whole the play — which 

preceded by Mr. Tom Taylor's comedy entitled " Nine Points of the Law " — was 

ceived very cordially by a crowded audience, and we wish the new venture every 

ccess. If there be any audiences left in London they are sure to be attracted by 

is performance. 

Opera Comique. — On Saturday night was produced at this theatre an English version 
Graston Serpette's comic opera, " La Branche Cassee," entitled, " The Broken Branch," 
ich is a welcome addition to the musical stage, both as containing a good deal of 
'■ely and tasteful music and as introducing for the first time to a theatrical audience a 
ager of attractive appearance and of more than ordinary accomplishments. Madame 
iuline Eita, the debutante, has, we believe, been for some time favourably known as a 
ncert singer, and her reputation is in no danger of being injured by her appearance 
comic opera. Mr. D'Oyly Carte, the lessee of the Opera Comique, has secured a 
pital company, including a new tenor ; and the success of the re- production was 
ninently secured. 

Deurt Lane Theatre re- opens for the season on Saturday next. 
Brighton. — Mr. Farquharson, the descriptive vocalist, has commenced an engagement 
a week at the Royal Aquarium in his entertainment, " Six Nights with Dibdin and 
iher popular Poets." — " Cora " has been withdrawn from the Theatre Royal, and Mrs. 
ermann Vezin appeared on Monday night in " Miss Chester," supported by Mr. 
ignold and Mr. J). Fisher, jun., and Miss R. Oscar Byrn appears nightly in Offenbach's

Catholic Total Abstinence League. — The &rst fete of this association was held on 

] l^ndaj at the Crystal Palace. It has been formed mainly by the untiring exertions of 

fet great apostle of temperance Archbishop Manning, who has never ceased to strive 

f • the cause, not alone of temperance, but of total abstinence. On Monday the pro- 

cjdings were of a semi-religious character, for there was a large meeting held in the 

Oera Theatre, at which Archbishop Manning presided, supported by Father Newman, 

]},ther Matthew (a relative of the great temperance preacher). Dr. Lockhart, Father 

. ]>onard, from the United States, Father Di Bruno, and others. Nearly all these 

[ujverend speakers addressed their vast congregation — for such for the time we may call 

ij-urgiog on them the paramount importance of temperance. Then the meeting was 

; c solved, and the usual Crystal Palace amusements went on for the rest of the day. 

jfter five o'clock the archbishop addressed a crowded meeting in the gardens, where he 

' ifeed with a homely eloquence, that at times was real pathos, the evils of intemperance, 

Ijth mentally and bodily. Certainly the cause of abstinence has never found a more 

e advocate, and we wish his grace every success. 

"oBTH Woolwich Gardens. — The fete on Monday for the benefit of the lessee of 
s pleasant suburban resort may be pronounced a thorough success. Mr. Holland is 
s liberal and popular a manager that an occasion of the kind is certain to command 
puty of support. On Monday the attendance of visitors was unusually large ; seldom, 
iieed, have we seen the gardens so thronged. A large number and variety of extra 
etertainments were included in the bill, commencing early in the afternoon with the 
f I'formance of a farce in the theatre, succeeded by other dramatic entertainments and 
8)allet; whilst out of doors there was a balloon ascent, dancing on the large platform, 
1 litary bands, and, to wind up the festivities, a really fine display of fireworks. After 
(rk the grounds were illuminated with countless coloured lamps, presenting a very 
jetty effect. The whole of the programme was repeated on Tuesday. 
Actors Plating Polo and Base Ball. — A number of gentlemen connected with 
le of the Liverpool theatres raised a considerable sum on Saturday, in aid of two 
l?al charities — the Seaman's Orphanage and the training ship Indefatigable — by taking 
jrt in burlesque games of polo and base ball, on some ground attached to a suburban 
Hal. In the polo match one half of the performers were mounted on real donkeys, 
nile their opponents bestrode those baskets steeds so familiar to the lovers of bui'lesque 
f d pantomime. The fun was fast and furious, and gave immense delight to a vast crowd 
< spectators. The base ball match was not quite so provocative of laughter, for it was 
<ily a burlesque, owing to the evident ignorance of all the performers, except Messrs. 
'. W. Anson and Mr. J. L. Hall, who learnt the mysteries of the game during their 
^ofessional stay in America. 

Mr. Toole's present residence in New York is famous for its associations. He has 
)it up at the Westminster Hotel, and occupies the same suite of rooms as did Dickens 
Jid Charles Eeade. 

Me. J. S. Clarke will appear at the A del phi for a short term after the withdrawal of 
The Prayer in the Storm."

M MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 

jo. 16,334. FRIDAY, August 28, 1874» .Price Id. 

|3ouTH London Choeal Association. — An entertaining and interesting concert was 
(g^n on "Wednesday at the Crystal Palace by the South London Choral Association, a 
bi^y of vocalists who, it will be remembered, gained the second honours in the 
njional competition at Sydenham last year. When we state that the programme 
iiluded no less than twenty-six items, we may be pardoned for not dwelling at length 
U3U the performance. The singing of the choir — relieved with solos by Miss Helen 
ijiltou, Mr. Q-. Fox, Mr. F. H. Celli, and Mr. W. H. Cummings — is, however, worthy 
oimore than a passing word. In the estimation of very many of the auditors of the 
)\c<Qpetitive display (ourselves among the number), the singing of the South London 
Coir was inestimably superior to that of the other choral societies. The performance 
0^ Wednesday only tends to confirm our opinion that, thanks to diligent practice and 
eiscientious training, the South London Choral Association is the best body of part- 
ners that the metropolis affords, with the sole exception of Mr. Henry Leslie's choir. 
voices are fresh and tuneful, the balance is well preserved, and their power 
iviug light and shade in the execution of a composition is admirably evinced. 
Leonard C. Venables, the conductor, has evidently spared no pains to render the 
iristers perfect in their tasks ; and by teaching them to obey the slightest motion of 
wand has got them to move with almost mechanical precision. The excellence of 
part-singing was especially noticeable in Macfarren's " The Hunt is Up," H, Smart's 
'aken, Lords and Ladies Gray," and ¥. Wilbye's madrigal " Sweet Honey-sucking 
es," all of which were delicately and accurately sung ; special attention being paid to 
various gradations of tone. The efforts of the choir were thoroughly successful, 
iting considerable applause from the large audience assembled. Of the soloists we 
d only state that Miss D'Alton — one of the purest contraltos to which the sister isle 
3r gave birth — sang Sullivan's " Will he come," Barri's ballad, " The shadow of the 
(oss," and " John Anderson, my Joe," with perfect taste ; that Mr. Celli gave Molloy's 
'Vagabond" in a spirited and manly way ; that Mr. Cummings was eminently successful 
i " The Bay of Biscay ;" and that Mr. Fox sang " The Village Blacksmith " with effect, 
^le orchestral accompaniments and instrumental pieces were given by a moiety of Mr. 
lanns' band, under the direction of the redoubtable chef d'orchestre. 
GrEEAT preparations are making at the Standard Theatre for the new domestic 
lectacular drama, by Leonard Eae, " Hal o' the Wynd," founded on Sir Walter Scott's 
))vel, " The Fair Maid of Perth." We believe this novel has not been dramatised for 
le London stage since 1828. The present version is to be in four acts and twelve 
Ibleaux, and we understand the scenery, by Mr. Richard Douglass, and general mount- 
;g of the piece will be on a scale of completeness equal to that which annually 
tiaracterises the Christmas productions at this theatre. To give due effect to the 
•ama a powerful cast of characters is announced. Mr. T. Swinbourne will appear as 
al o' the Wynd ; Mr. James Bennett as Sir John of Eamorney ; Mr. Pennington as 
onnachar ; Mr. T. Mead as Torguil of the Oak ; and Mr. Gr. Hamilton as David of 
lothsay. With such a cast and produced with liljerality on such a stage as the Standard 
le play will go far to ensure the success we hope to chronicle. It is announced for 
eptember the 7th or l4th, but no doubt the latter date will be the one ultimately 
3termined on. 

The regular G-aiety company, with Mr. Arthur Cecil, and several important additions, 
ill resume their comedy and opera-bouffe performances at the G^aiety Theatre on 
londay, August 31st.

Meeting op Eenters op the Thea.tee Eotal, Duuet-la^ne. — We arc requested 
to announce, with reference to the meeting of renters of the Theatre Royal Drury-lane, 
that the renters' committee, in addition to those already named, consists of Mr. Bashford 
and Mr. W. Tigg. We are also asked to state that the report of the committee, although 
partly founded on that of the proprietors and renters, is a distinct report, which is 
submitted to the renters at their annual meeting. This careful watching of the expend- 
iture is made, in some measure, to account for the increased dividends year by year. 

Beethoven anb Mendelssohn". — A volume of personal recollections of Beethoven, 
Q-oethe, and Mendelssohn is in the press, from the pen of Herr Heinrich von Meister, 
who was acquainted with the great poet and composers. The work will be written ia 
English. Herr von Meister has also in his possession some letters of Mendelssohn to 
himself, to Goethe, and to Beethoven, which he will shortly publish. 

Me. Henet Russell, who, like Mr. Milano recently, has been killed by some of our 
contemporaries, writes to the AthencBuin that, although musically deceased, he is still in 
the flesh, and, judging from the lively tone of his letter, he is as energetic as when, some 
thirty years ago, he was giving his ballad entertainments, in which his " Maniac," " Ship 
on Fire," " Cheer, Boys, Cheer," and other ntill popular songs were sung and declaimed 
with such vigour. 

Deuey-lane Theatee. — This theatre will open for the season this evening, when 
" Amy Robsart " and the opening of the pantomime of "Jack in the Box" will be 
performed. 

Me. Foley. — The public will learn with great regret the death of Mr. J. H. Foley, 
E.A., the well-known sculptor. An attack of pleuritic effusion, commencing about 
three weeks past, and rapidly followed by great prostration of general system, terminated 
fatally at a quarter to eleven o'clock on Thursday morning. There is hardly a city in 
the Empire that does not possess one of his works, and the statue for the Albert 
Memorial and the Dublin O'Connell monument remain yet uncompleted. 

The late John Leech. — Miss Leech, sister of the late Mr. John Leech, has offered 
to lend to the Brighton Pavilion Committee her private collection of Mr. Leech's original 
large drawings. The offer has been accepted. 

Ofpenbach. — After two nights devoted to a general rehearsal of the new sensational 
decorations of " Orphee aux Enfers," at the Graite in Paris, Offenbach has produced his 
new divertissement. Ten tableaux or transformations compose the "Kingdom of 
Neptune." The grand ballet lor which these scenes serve, is executed by 16 principal 
dancers, 24 figurantes, and 60 coryphees, and serves for the debuts of a choregraphical 
troop which Offenbach went to secure at Milan, and of which Mdlle. Eoselli is the star. 

Death op Me. Betty. — Mr. Betty, many years since known as the " Young Eoscius," 
then a perfect prodigy as a tragedian, died a few days ago at the age of eighty-three. 
It will be remembered that his son also appeared successfully before the public a few 
years ago. 

Madame Nilsson. — This lady is stated to be in a treaty with the manager of the 
Vienna Opera for a series of representations. 

A DiscovEBY that will interest the whole world, artistic or not, has (says the papers) 
just been made at the Chateau of Amboise. Some workmen engaged in reparations 
came upon a tumulary stone on which was written " Leonardo da Vinci." A dispatch 
was at once forwarded to the Comte de Paris, the owner of the chateau, and the stone 
coffin was opened in presence of a group of savants. The remains of the great painter 
■were found in a good state of preservation. It was known that Leonardo da Vinci died 
near Amboise, but the place of bis burial had hitherto been a secret.

DEATH OF JOHN HENRY FOLEY, R.A. 

En&lish art has sustained a severe but nob wholly unexpected loss. John Henry 
Foley, of the Royal Academy, is no more. On Thursday forenoon he quietly passed 
away at his residence, 10, Osnaburgh-street, in his 56th year. For some time he had 
been in a delicate state of health, and about three weeks ago was attacked by a pleuritic 
effusion, which his weakened constitution was unable to resist. His death leaves a gap 
in the phalanx of our native sculptors which will not readily be filled. Foley commenced 
early ; it was said of Pope that he lisped in numbers, and it might be said of Foley that 
he modelled in pinafores. At 13 years of age he entered the drawing-school of the 
Koyal Dublin Society, under the advice and assistance of a near relative, who was a 
sculptor in the Irish metropolis, and who had noticed the artistic tendencies of the boy. 
Having gained the first prizes in each of the classes, he attended for the " Study of the 
human form, animals, achitecture, and modelling." He migrated to London in the year 
1834, and entered as a student of the Eoyal Academy. He first appeared before the 
public at the exhibition in 1839, to which he contributed models of the " Death of Abel " 
and " Innocence," which immediately attracted the attention of connoisseurs. In the 
following year he produced " Ino and the Infant Bacchus," a group delicately imagined 
and admirably wrought. The Earl of EUesmere became its purchaser, and the youth 
who sculptured it "awoke to find himself famous." This work is well known through- 
out the households of the Empire by the many reproductions of it in reduced size in 
Parian. Mr. Foley's principal works have been "Lear and Cordelia" and "The Death 
of Lear," 1841 ; " Yenus rescuing iEneas," 1842 ; " Prospero relating his Adventures 
to Miranda," 1843; "Contemplation," 1845; "Innocence," 1848; "The Mourner," 
1849; "The Mother," 1850; "Egeria," 1854 (commissioned by the corporation of 
London, and now in the Mansion House). At the Westminster Hall competition in 
dl844 he exhibited his " Ino and Infant Bacchus," and " A Youth at a Stream," having 
modelled the latter figure for the occasion, and was chosen one of the three sculptors to 
i execute the statues for the Isew Palace at Westminster, receiving commissions for 
John Hampden (1847) and Lord Seldon (1853) in St. Stephen's Hall. ^^ In 
1856 he completed in bronze a group, "Lord Hardinge and Charger," for 
Calcutta, which was so much admired that a requisition, signed by; 150 of 
-the first names in art and literature, was presented to him, expressmg their 
til desire to see its duplicate erected in London, in proof of the capabilities of an 
a English sculptor. In 1858, he modelled" Caractacus " for the Mansion House, and 
'^ was made an E.A. His position was now assured, which, though an advantage to hirn- 
'' self, was, perhaps, a detriment to art, since orders came in so quickly to the successtul 
; , sculptor that he had no leisure to devote to the ideal compositions that warmed his 
si imagination in youth. He was in great request for portrait busts and memorials, many 
sjjof which are recognised among the treasures of the country in statuary, and most ot 
-which are too well known to demand any particular notice at the present moment. 
' While the Albert Memorial exists Foley will need no monument to his skill m tho 
metropolis, and as long as his masterly statues of Edmund Burke and Ohver (ioldsmith 
:' sentinel the Dublin University his memory is sure to be perpetuated in lasting admiratmn 
in his own birthplace. He has left in his studio, alas ! unfimshed, a statue ot Darnel 
O'Connell, which bade fair to rival his greatest achievements. He has departed in the 
' fullness of his powers and popularity— departed, we say advisedly, tor the true artist 
never dies.

No. 16,337. TUESDAY, Sept. 1, 1874. Price Id. 



DEURY LANE THEATRE. 
TAKiNa time by tlie forelock, Mr. F. B. Cliatterton, the popular and energetic lessee 
of " Old Drurj," opened his theatre for the winter season on Saturday last, the date 
being much earlier in the year than that usually assigned for the ceremony of unclosing 
the portals of the national theatre. To all intents and purposes, Mr. Cliatterton has 
been wise in his generation, for he has not only furnished the play-goer with a means 
of killing time in this dullest of "off" seasons, but he has provided the theatre with a 
substantial bill of fare until the new drama "Eichard Coeur de Lion " — 
founded by Mr.Halliday uponScott'snovel " The Talisman " — be ready for representation, 
for which stupendous preparations are being made. The theatre on Saturday was 
crowded to suffocation to witness the revival of " Amy Eobsart," originally brought out 
on these boards four years since, with Miss Neilson as the heroine. With the exception 
of Mr. Creswick, who gives quite a Shakesperian flavour to the lago-like villany of 
Varney, the cast is in all essential respects precisely the same as when the piece was last 
acted here, and this stirring " sensational " drama into which Mr. Andrew Halliday has 
so adroitly fashioned Sir Walter Scott's novel of " Kenilworth " is reproduced with a 
pristine brilliancy of appointments. The power and pathos of Miss Wallis still 
command admiration as devoted to a portrayal of the wrongs of the much-enduring Amy, 
and the strong situation in which she appeals to the Queen to protect her from the 
designs of Varney, while. refusing to imperil the life of Leicester by a revelation of her 
marriage, once more exerts a potent influence over the sympathies of the audience. 
Miss Edith Stuart faithfully transmits the traditional attributes of Queen Elizabeth : 
Mr. H. Sinclair ably upholds the repute for courtly graces of the Earl of Leicester ; and 
with Mr. Brittaiu W"right for the roystering Michael Lambourne, Miss Kate Vaughan 
for the nimble Elibbertijibbet, and Miss Kemp and Miss Marshall for the representatives 
of the I)uchess of Eutland and Lady Paget, even the most subordinate characters are to be 
found satisfactorily filled. The elaborately-illustrated " grand comic annual " of " Jack in 
the Box," in which we have odd reminiscences of old English folk-lore and nursery legends, 
blended with fanciful fairy ballets, showing the fullest developement of modern stage 
appliances, is restored in all its original splendour. The fun and flexibility of Mr. F. 
Evans, the piquant vivacity of Miss Harriet Coveney, the bright intelligence of the 
clever couple of juveniles, Miss Amalia and Miss Violet Cameron, the fantastic dancing 
of Miss Kate Vaughan, and the service so gracefully rendered by Miss Alma Murray, 
Hiss Sylvia Hodson, Miss Eussell, and Miss Clara Jecks, received from the admiring 
audience the heartiest recognition. The National Anthem was sung, after the drama, 
by the whole strength of the company. Mr Carl Meyder is the Chef d' Orchestre. 
The Lydia Thompson season at the Charing Cross Theatre promises to be one of the 
chief sensations in the theatrical world. Several clever performers have just arrived from 

^^'New York, who have been members of Miss Thompson's company in the new world, and 
a host of artistes have been engaged to support the star. Amongst the names wdl be 

, found Mr. Lionel Brough, Mr. Charles Wyndham, Mr. Alfred Bishop, Mr. Holston, &c. ; 

j^jMiss Alice Ingram, Kathleen Irwin, Topsey Venn, Burns, Lea, G-arthwaite, Brough, 

^,&c. The opening performances will be a comedy in three acts, by F. C. Buruaud, and 
an oriental extravaganza by H. B. Earnie ; the latter has been played by Miss Thompson's 

-company upwards of 700 times in the United States. The season will commence on 

; Saturday, the 19th inst. • , i i, 

"Hand aot) G-love."— Mr. Conquest, supported by the original cast, has been 
engaged to give four performances of this drama at the Crystal Eaiace m October.

tion of its appropriate function, which cannot be the case under great transitions of temperature, unl 
some correctial medicine be taken occasionally. When the chilling winds of spring are succeeded

in efficient action by some such alterative medicine as Holloway's noted Pills, which regulate 1

"LA FILLE DE MADAME ANGOT." 
Lyceum Theatre. 
The farewell engagement of Miss Emily Soidene at this theatre being now near its 
close, the programme has been wisely so altered that it permits this popular singer and 
actress to appear in another character, in connexion with which her name has been 
favourably known to the public. "With this view the " Grand Duchess " has been with- 
drawn from the bills, after a considerable run, and the comic opera above-named 
substituted. The first representation at this theatre of the opera, in the version which 
was performed lately at the Opera Comique, was given on Monday night, when neai'ly 
the whole of the original cast appeared. In one important character— that of Clairette 
— there was a change of representative ; Miss Selina Dolaro, who made her first appear- 
ance on Monday night, had previously shown how able an exponent of the part she was ; 
the excellence of her acting and singing was duly appreciated. Most of the songs, both 
of Mademoiselle Lange and Clairette were redemanded, and the grand scolding duet iu 
the last act, delicately referred to in the programme as the " recrimination scene," was 
so vociferously applauded that it had to be repeated three times. Miss Clara Vesey ia 
entrusted with the part of Hersilie, which certainly does not give her an opportunity to 
display the ability of which she is the possessor. Mr. Beverly made a good Ange Pitou, 
singing the music of the part well ; his waltzing was particularly noticeable for its grace 
and ease; Miss Clara Vesey is entitled to similar praise. More than a word is due to 
the Larivaudiere of Mr. Lewins, an impersonation embodying a great deal of humour ; 
it brought down frequent shouts of laughter from the audience. Mr. E. Marshall as 
jLouchard, Mr. Laurant as Pomponnet ; Mr. John Wallace, Mr. Cullen, and Mr. May- 
hard, all materially contributed by their excellent acting to the success of the revival — 
a success which was unequivocally demonstrated by the frequent applause and the calls 
of the principal actors and actresses before the curtain. The dresses (by Miss Price) and 
mountings of the opera are deserving of praise ; and the chorus, under Mrs. Charlotte 
Johnson, is well trained and efficient. 

" Eattst " AT THE Cetstal Palace. — The performance of "Faust" on Saturday 

possessed an unusual significance to the large audience assembled here — the occasion 

fbeing that of Madame Florence Lancia's farewell to the stage. Madame Lancia has 

-'been upon the stage but a few years, and she has selected for her retirement a period 

when she is in the fullest enjoyment of youth and health, and with her vocal powers 

fresh as ever. Of the representation of M. Gounod's masterpiece on Saturday we have 

no occasion to write much in detail ; Madame Lancia played Marguerite charmingly to 

an audience assembled to do her special honour ; she was literally overwhelmed with 

bouquets after the " jewel " song. Madame Lancia carries with her the good wishes of the 

public, as well as of those who know at what rate to estimate a thorough artiste. Mr. 

Nordblom was an accomplished Faust ; Mr. F. H. Colli, Mephisto (his first appear- 

: ance in that character) ; Mr. Carlton, Valentine ; and Miss Lucy Franklein, Siebel ; 

Mr. Manns was the conductor. ^^ t • i i 

The Adelphi still keeps jogging along with " The Prayer in the Storm," which has 

•' lived a longer life than it deserves. The remainder of the entertainment at this house 

i is made up of the farces of " A Waltz by Arditi " and " Hide and Seek." The bHl here 

I will soon undergo alteration. i th r<

FUNERAL OP MR. BETTY. 

The remains of the late Mr. William Henry Weat Betty, better known as " The 
Young Eosciug," were interred in the Highgate Cemetery, on Tuesday. The funeral 
cortege consisted of a hearse and four and one mourning coach, containing the soa of 
the deceased, who was accompanied by Mr. Davis, the medical attendant. The service 
was read by the Eev. R. French Smith. There were several theatrical friends of the 
deceased present, amongst whom were Mr. Ledger, editor of the -Em, Mr. Dewhurst, 
Mr. H. Butler, and Mr. Nelson. The coffin was covered with black cloth, and on the 
breast-plate was the inscription, " William Henry West Betty, Esq., who died the 2ith 
of August, 1874s aged 82 years." The tomb, which is a beautiful piece of workmanship, 
was erected by deceased some years since, and has ou it his own and son and daughter's 
names, leaving only the dates of the respective deaths to be inserted. The London 
Figaro, in very questionable taste, says : " It is interesting, as an indication of the dul- 
ness of the season, to notice what a fuss has been made over the death, at eighty-three, 
of the ' Young Eoscius.' No one knew till he died that he had not been dead for the 
last twenty years." There is scarcely a man connected in any way with dramatic 
literature, but knew of the existence of, and felt an esteem for, the late Mr. Betty ; he has 
done much good in his time for his more needy brethren. 

Peincess's Theatee.— Mr. Webster's engagement at the Princess's Theatre is draw- 
ing to a close. The last five nights are announced. 

Adelphi Theatee. — A new programme has been arranged for this popular theatre. 
Mr. J. S. Clarke will shortly make his re-appearance. 

Albeet Hall. — Arrangements have been made for giving a nightly series of high- 
class concerts at the Eoyai Albert Hall, to commence early in November next. A 
permanent orchestra will be formed, and the chorus will be that of the Eoyal Albert 
Hall Choral Society. Pirst-class artistes will be engaged ; and the present intention 
is, that these concerts shall be continued during ten months of the year. 

Ceemoene. — Mr. Adams' benefit took place at Cremorne yesterday. Mr. Adams this 
year very appropriately termed his reception " The Town and Country Festival," for the 
occasion presented a great increase of town and country amusements, of that acceptable 
character for which Mr. Adams has always been an advocate. He was well patronized. 

Me. Toole in Ameeica.— By telegram we learn that Mr. Toole's first American 
appearance was at Wallack's Theatre on Monday the 17th of August, in his famous 
cockney impersonation of Simmons, in the farce of " The Spitalfields AVeaver," and his 
last, character the quaint barrister, in Mr. Albery's drama of " Wig and Gown." 
Mr. Toole's reception was of a most flattering description, and he achieved an 

immense success. . ■ •*. + 

Madame Adelina Path.— This favourite cantatrice contemplates paying a visit to 
Birmingham, and will sing at a concert to be given in the Town Hall towards the end 

of September. i ^ i f ^-i

THEATRICAL MANAGEMENT.— MR. F. B. CHATTBRTON. 

Just now, it is a clear case of " London out of town," yet we are well supplied with 
dramatic entertainment. Mr. Chatterton, the most enterprising, energetic, and clever 
theatrical manager of our time, provides the public, who are still in London, or who 
have had their constitutional seaside sojourn, with a vast opportunity to enjoy perform- 
ances by first-rate performers. At Dbubt Lane, we have the artistic acting of Mr. 
Creswick and Miss Wallis in " Amy Robsart," and the entertaining opening of last year's 
pantomime. Mr. Creswick's Varuey is an admirable portrait — one in which great study 
is shown, a ready perception of character, and a graceful ease of embodiment. Miss 
Wallis also greatly distinguishes herself, and asserts her right to take high rank in the 
jrofession she already adorns. At another theatre, the Princess's, Mr. Chatterton has 
1 afforded the lovers of the more homely class of drama, an opportunity to see acting of 
a very high class — notably that of Mr. Webster in his clever and dramatic assumption 
of Richard Pride ; Mr. Belmore and Mr. Mclntyre are also capital representatives of 
^(their respective characters in the same drama — the first-named part, on the production 
I of the piece, having been rendered popular by the late Mr. Keeley, and 
the other characteristically embodied by the late Mr. Paul Bedford. The third 
jifcheatre, under the same excellent management (the Adelphi) has provided a still more 
sensational class of amusement, one that proves its popularity by the vast number of 
repetitions it has undergone : this, with a couple of farces, appears to have more than 
satisfied the taste of crowded audiences for months. A change of performance, however, 
8 announced, whether required or not is a matter for managerial decision, and will take 
place very soon, when Mr. J. S. Clarke, the clever American comedian, will commence 
in engagement. The last seven nights of " The Prayer in the Storm " are in the course 
)f representation. Reviewing, therefore, the matters we have here alluded to, we cannot 
iome to any other conclusion than that Mr. Chatterton is not only a clever, but that he 
s the most popular theatrical manager of modern times. 

Me. Sims Reeves is at Wiesbaden in the enjoyment of abundant health and 
ipirits. 

Sfdden- Death op an Actoe. — Maek Smith, American actor, who has obtained 
ionsiderable celebrity in his native country, died suddenly of apoplexy in the train near 
Paris. 

The Roll-call. — Virginia Grabriel has written a new song, entitled " Calling the 
Joll." It was suggested by Miss Thompson's picture. 

CuEiOFS Notice. — The manager of a French provincial theatre has speculated on 
mman nature in the following notice which he has had posted up outside of the theatre : 
—" The manager begs that all pretty women will take off their hats and bonnets. Those 
vho may be ugly or elderly are welcome to keep them on." 

Gloucestee Musical Festival. — The triennial Musical Festival of the three choirs 
»f Worcester, Hereford, and Gloucester will be held at Gloucester on Tuesday, the 8th 
»f September, and three following days. 

Me. Willie Edouin, a comedian whose Californian, Australian, and American repu- 
ation is said to be great, has just arrived by the City of Montreal, and will appear at 
he Charing-cross Theatre to perform the characters he has sustained durmg a three 
'ears' engagement with Miss Lydia Thompson's company, commencing September 19th. 
iliss Alice Atherton and Miss Bessie Sudlow, also members of Miss Thompson's com- 
)any, have arrived in London.

GLOUCESTER FESTIVAL. 
The one hundred and fifty-first festival of the three choirs of Worcester, Hereford, 
and G-loucester, will be held at Grloucester next week, under the presidency of the Duke 
of Beaufort. The list of stewards contains the names of I U members of the aristocracy 
and gentry of Gloucestershire and the neighbouring counties. The names of the 
principal vocalists have already been given. The organist will be Mr. Townshend Smith, 
of Hereford ; the pianist, Mr. Done, of Worcester ; and the conductor, Dr. S. S. Wesley. 
The solo instrumentalists, will be Miss Agnes Zimmermann, M. Sainton, and Mr, 
Carrodus. The band, numbering 57 instrumentalists, will be thus constituted : — 19 
violins, 7 violas, 6 violoncellos, 6 double-basses, 2 flutes, 3 trombones, 2 oboes, 2 
clarionets, 2, bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 1 double-bassoon, and drums — selected 
almost entirely from London. On Tuesday morning, in the cathedral, the programme 
will consist of Spohr's " Last Judgment," and a cantata by C. M. von Weber, " Praise 
Jehovah." Wednesday morning will be devoted to Mendelssohn's " Elijah." Thursday 
morning Rossini's " Messe Solennelle," and Mendelssohn's " Hymn of Praise," will be 
given. Friday morning will be appropriated to Handel's " Messiah." On Tuesday 
evening, Haydn's " Creation," as far as the end of the second part ; and Rossini's 
" Stabat Mater " will be given. On Wednesday evening there will be a concert of 
secular music in the Shire Hall, the programme of which will include twelve items from 
Mozart's " Don Q-iovanni," (solos by Mdlle. Tietjens, Miss Edith Wynne, Madame 
Trebelli-Bettini, Mr. Bentham, Mr, Lewis Thomas, and Signer Agnesi) ; the 
adagio and rondo, from Beethoven's E flat pianoforte concerto ; Mozart's 
"Jupiter" symphony ; Ernst's violin fantasia on " Otello," to be played by 
Mr. Carrodus ; Mozart's overture to " Idomeneo ;" and vocal examples by Grounod, 
Beethoven, Auber, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Schubert, and Meyerbeer. On 
Thursday evening there will also be a secular concert, which will include the 
whole of the music, by Mendelssohn, to The Midsummer Nighfs Dream, vocal 
solo parts by Miss Edith Wynne and Miss G-rifiiths, a selection from Weber's " Obcron," 
solo parts by Mdlle. Tietjens, Miss Edith Wynne, Madame Trebelli-Bettini, Mr. E. Lloyd, 
and Mr. Lewis Thomas ; E. David's andante, and rondo capricioso for violin, to be 
played by M. Sainton ; and vocal examples by Bach, Rossini, Gounod, Balfe, Arue, 
Wesley, Ricci, and Cusins, On Friday evening there wiU be service at the cathedral, 
when a sermon will be preached by the Rev. Canon Barry, in aid of the fund for the 
widows and orphans of the poorer clergy in the dioceses of Gloucester, Worcester, and 
Hereford, There will also be services on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday 
mornings ; and on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons at five o'clock. The 
music for the services will be selected from the works of Wesley, Tye, Gibbons, Boyce, 
Rogers, and King. Would any foreigner believe that this programme was the oflfsprmg 
of an Englishman's judgment ? We have Handel, Mozart. Beethoven, Spohr, Weber, 
Haydn, Bach, Gounod, Auber, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Schubert, Meyerbeer, David, 
Ricci— all foreign composers ; scarcely any English names are allowed to encrouch on 
this foreign festival in an English catherdral, under the baton of an English conductor ! 
The music is nearly all foreign ; the soloists are the same, both vocal and instrumental. 
Verily the national musical art is greatly indebted to the prompter and conauctor of 
the "fifty-first festival of the three choirs of Worcester, Hereford, and Gloucester. 
What a boon to the English musician to read that the religious services will be selected 
from the works of Wesley, Tye, Boyce, Gibbons, Rogers, and King ! What a pity a 
little of the foriegn element could not be introduced into the simple forms ot worhsip 
in the cathedral !

JOTTINGS AT HASTINGS. 

We are taking a little airing at the seaside ; Hastings is now our locality. We have 
no objection to sea-water, at a distance or near, but we have a little or no predilection 
for rain-water, either far or near. There is a little redundance of the latter, at our 
present writing, yet we are inhaling the pure ozone of a seaside place that never fails to 
give us renewed vigour, and satisfaction — we are fortifying ourselves, " a constitutional," 
while we pursue our labours in part, leaving our poor desponding sub — himself a very 
unhappy and discontented specimen of literary drudgery— in charge of home matters. 
We must remark that such is the acerbity of his nature, that we have already indited 
several apologies to those who during our absence have come into his critical clutches : 
such is his fire-eating propersities, that we never go out when in London, unarmed ; but 
we dismiss him from our mind, now ; we shall have enough of him, and to spare, when 
we resume our editorial chair. This sojourn at Hastings has brought us no little 
pleasure, for amongst the bright little spots on our memory, " The Hasting's, St. Leonard's 
and Sussex Elower-show," will occupy a space : it was held on the pier, on Wednesday 
and Thursday, and was attended by a large and fashionable _ company. A very 
influential committee was formed, W. D. Lucas Shadwell, Esq., being at the head of it ; 
Mr. Beeching, the treasurer ; and Mr. Stanley Weston, the secretary. The show of 
flowers and plants was remarkably fine, and the distribution of the prizes very interest- 
ing. One of the charms of the exhibition was the admirable playing of Marriott's 
band ; it will be recollected that Mr. Marriott was formerly the conductor at Highbury Barn 
in its best days ; it should also be stated that he is a very popularcomposer of dance-music, 
having distinguished himself very much in that class of composition. We are indebted 
to Mr. H. M. Baker, for some polite little marks of attention, and we ofi"er him _ our 
thanks for his courtesy. The refreshment department was all that could be disired. 
Lieutenant Cole is also in Hastings : he gives performances at the Music Hall there ; 
we attended on one occasion, and found a numerous and fashionable assemblage present. 
Mr. Cole keeps his audience thoroughly amused throughout the evening : a young lady, 
who assists him, has a pleasing voice and manner; but two gentlemen as niggers, gave 
an entertainment that perhaps might have been agreeably dispensed with. With refer- 
ence to Lieut. Cole, Dr. Austin Browne, during his sojourn in England, recently, writes 
thus : " Of the many wonderful things I have seen and heard, while residing in London, 
the most wonderful are the Ventriloquial Performances of Lieutenant Walteb Cole, 
who completely mystifies our senses of sight and hearing. How the slight modest 
gentleman standing on the platform can with the utmost apparent ease carry on a 
conversation between some half-dozen entirely distinct individuals, while he himseit 
without a movement of the lips, is calmly gazing at his audience, must be witnessed to 
be believed. As a medical man of some experience, I consider his vocal exertions simply 
marvellous, while his entertainment is refined, and humorous to a degree, and well 
deserving the thanks of applause, and roars of laughter it provokes The pleasure we 
have felt from our visit to Hastings has been increased by our attendance at the 1 lower 
Show, and also by Mr. Cole's performance at the Hastings Music Hall. 

Lu-Lu will arrive in England shortly, and commence about the middle of October at 
the New Star Varieties, Liverpool. ,,, , • i . i.i -o ■ „„.< '.

HATMARKET THEATRE.—" FROU-FROU." 

Mdlle. Beateice and her well-trained company continue to hold their sway at this 
theatre. There are few modern plays of the French school so well suited to insular 
tastes as M. Victorien Sardou's "Frou-Frouj" certainly the infringement of the Seventh 
Commandment, so common to the Parisian stage, is present in the story, but here it is 
used simply to point a moral, the terrible earnestness of which proves the fervour which 
animated the dramatist. We can scarcely call the idiosyncrasy of the French drama a 
blemish in the present instance ; its presence is by no means objectionable, and it serves 
to call back our thoughts, whenever they wander, to the fact of the continental origin 
of the piece. Viewed as an example of dramatic workmanship, setting aside the question 
of social morality, " Frou-Frou" is an instance of great skill, used with praiseworthy 
moderation. Even the immediate consequences of Frou-Frou's sinful flight are not 
represented in the couleur de rose light which might b esupposed to accompany them ; we 
can see that she repents in her heart of what she has done, but, knowing her crime to 
be irrevocable, lives on to endure the bitter punishment which sooner or later must 
overtake her. It is swift enough, in all conscience ; her paramour falls at the hand of 
her husband, and death soon curtails the unhappy woman's life of expiation, blessed at 
the last moment by the forgiveness of the man she has wronged. _ There is a trace of 
writing down to the public in this forgiving episode, and the exactions of the drama 
wouldliave been better fulfilled by allowing Gilberte to die in the full bitterness of his 
repentance ; on the other hand, the scene, as it states, is profoundly affecting, and 
touches the heart by reason of its combining joy with sorrow. We can estimate 
the powers of an actress at their full worth when she is engaged m represent- 
ing "Frou-Frou," and we do not hesitate to say that there is not one single 
situation in the drama to which Mdlle. Beatrice fails to rise. All that the 
art of a clever actress can do for the character she contributes. The strong scene where 
Gilberte accuses her sister Louise, of having estranged the affections of her husband 
and child, and reveals the method in which she will take her revenge, showed an amount 
of intensity for which we were unprepared, rising almost to the height ot grandeur, and 
scarcely less admirable was the manner in which the whole of the fourth act-where 
she is living at Rome with the companion of her flight-is played. A study more care- 
ful, and given with greater finish, we have not remarked for a long time, and at present 
the ailberte of MadUe. Beatrice challenges comparison. Miss B. Edwards shows a 
great deal of promise in the manner in which she supports the role of Louise. ibe 
impersonation is essentially womanly and real, besides bemg roughly ^nstagy. ^^J^^^ 
thi weakness is apparent in the very unstaginess of the delineation. Miss Edwards 
evidently grasps the situation, but, whether from want of practice or lack of at we 
cannot state, fails to do either it or herself complete justice. We P^f e^ takmg a 
comprehensive glance at the supporters of the other characters to l^^l^^^g^^,^ ^^Xectionl' 
since the result in the former case is excellent, and in ^^f l^^^^^^^^P^^^^^^ ^J^f^^^^^ 
It would be hard to find a company playing better together than ^^^^ %^^^f h"'" l^ hI^ 
and difficult to discover a comedy acted better all round than ^^°^:f °;^.. ^,*,^^^^^ 
market, under the present direction. It is then simply neccessary to part culanse the 
•Lt which comprises Mr. Wenman, Mr. Frank Harvey, Mr. Carter-Edward Mr^^ 
Cowdry, Miss P. Chapman, Miss N. Lingham, and Miss Ida ^^^^J.^^^y' ^"!;';^^^^ 
Edward and Mdllef Beatrice. The representation ^^ ^^^^ f^'?^^^ J^^^^X^-'^^J 
successful, and the performance, as a spec men of evenly-balanced acting, offers an 
attraction not often brought within the reach of the Metropolitan play-goer.

some correctial medicine be taken occasionally. When the chilling winds of spring are succeeded^

'micL musical review with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 



No. 16,344. WEDNESDAY, Sept. 9, 1874, Price Id. 

North Woolwich Gardens. — Mr. Charles Holland, the manager of this popular 
resort, took his annual benefit on Monday night, when a largely extended programme of 
amusements was presented, and produced a considerable augmentation to the crowds that 
every day are attracted to the gardens. It was a matter for regret that the weather was 
somewhat unfavourable, but in spite of this drawback the day's entertainment was of a 
' most successful character. The lessee, Mr. W. Holland, had evidently spared no pains 
, to provide an attractive bill of fare for his patrons, and the large attendance showed that 
5! his endeavours to amuse the public were duly appreciated. A gra,nd concert and mis- 
'» cellaneous entertainment was the first item in the programme, in which Mr. William 
'" Seymour, who is an accomplished " nigger " vocalist and comedian, won well-deserved 
\ applause. The musical farce of " The Two Q-regories " followed. The several parts 
i were well sustained by Miss Wallace, Miss Johnstone, Mr. Sidney, Mr. Stacey, and Mr. 
Shepherd. The Campanologian band of bellringers performed a selection of airs upon 
bells in such a style as to receive a demand for its repetition, after which the amusing 
farce of " Did you ever send your wife to North Woolwich?" was represented, the 
words " North Woolwich " being substituted for " Camberwell." The farce, which i9 
probably by no means new to most playgoers, appeared in a difi'erent dreaa from that 
in which most people have been accustomed, for some time past, to see it. However, it 
apparently had lost none of its power to amuse on Monday, and it was welcome as intro- 
ducing to the London stage a comedian of considerable humour, and no smaU knowledge 
of his art, in Mr. Nicholls, who undertook the part of Mr. Honeybu.n for the first time. 
The dancing on the platform was carried on until the hour for closing the gardens, and 
the rain considerately held over until the last person had left. ^ , ^ , , , 

\ Accident to Me. Toole.— From New York we learn that Mr. J. L. Toole has been 
compeUed to interrupt his performances by a very unfortunate accident. While walkmg 
on the bluff at Long Branch on Monday, 23rd ult., his foot caught in a deep hole where 
a flagstaff had formerly been planted, and his ankle was severely sprained and wrenched. 
■< He was able to return to the city in the afternoon, and insisted upon appearing at tbe 
* theatre in the evening, where he went through the performance with little, it any, 
" diminution of his customary vivacity and drollery. He was suffermg intense pam, how- 
ever, and a physician was in attendance at the wings to apply lotions to the wounded 
joint whenever he came off the stage. The imprudent exertion of Monday evening pro- 
duced its natural effect, and the next day Mr. Toole was much worse, and his foot 
enormously swollen. There was no performance on Tuesday, and on Wednesday after- 
noon it became apparent that a further and indefinite postponement would be necessary 
and other attractions were hastily improvised to fill the interval. Mr. Too e has made 
so many friends and been so cordially admired that his misfortune is ,Yniversally 
lamented. He was to have appeared on the Wednesday night in ' Paul Pry and there 
was general curiosity to see him in a part which is close y associated with the tnumpbs 
of miny of the best American comedians. The interruption of his season, it is hoped. 
wUl not belong : but it is pecuUarly unfortunate, from the fact that he is able to retam 
Sie theatre for'a short time only, as^Mr. Wallack's company will «-- ^^^^^ ,f f/^^ 
Of it for the regular autumn and winter series of pertormances and Mr. Too « is then 
going to visit some of the other cities of the TJnited states and make an excursion int^ 
Canada, returning to New York, however, in he course of the winter. Thus tar r^ew 
York society has hardly caught a glimpse of him ^^^ t^« ^f^^^^^J^^^^f ,^^^^^^^^^ 
the springs, or the mointains, and the crowds which fiU the theatre are drawn chiefly 
from the multitude of strangers at the hotels.

CRYSTAL PALACE. 

Tuesday was the first day of the Autumn Flower and Fruit Show ; although no 
mention was made of the entries in the programme, prizes were offered for vegetables 
also. The show, though small comparatively speaking in extent, comprised many very 
choice examples of high culture in all the classes ; the grapes section notably so : more 
perfect bunches we have never seen. The melons, also, included some beautiful speci- 
mens. A new apple, Peargood's '■ Nonsuch," attracted much attention ; for beauty and 
size in combination, we know of none to surpass it. Among the flowers, the Q-ladioli 
were exceedingly attractive. Several prizes being offered a fine show was the result. 
Turner's collection of Dahlias was simply magnificent — hardly a specimen that did not 
fulfil the requirements of a perfect flower. Though less attractive in appearance, the 
classes for vegetables came in for much attention from the general visitor. Some 
splendid cabbages, " Enfield," shown by Mr. Lakeman, of Thornton Heath, fully merited 
the first position awarded to them. Although not entered for competition, Perry's 
" Banbury " onion seems an acquisition ; some fine bulbs were shown. Side by side 
with the Horticultural display was held the first exhibition of the newly formed British 
Bee-keeper's Association, of which Sir John Lubbock is president, and Mr. John Hunter 
secretary — the latter, a gentleman whose rare entomological knowledge is only equalled 
by his enthusiasm for the science. A great number of appliances were shown, all dis- 
playing special merits. The judge's task must have been a difficult one; for simplicity 
combined with economy, we saw none to excel those of Mr. Lee, of 
Bagshot, whose collection was very complete. An interesting exhibition of 
the habits of the bee took place at intervals during the day. 
We are not yet learned in apiculture, but it appears to us to be a very interesting 
subject, and one worthy of general attention. In connexion with what we have written, 
we extract the following notice from the Standard : " Especially would we congratulate 
the working members of the committee, Mr. F. Cheshire, Mr. J. M. Hooker, Mr. Smith 
Turner, Mr. C. N. Abbott, and above all the indefatigable honorary secretary, Mr. John 
Hunter, on the way in which the exhibition of bees and honey has at one step taken its 
place among the permanent attractions of the autumn ; nor must we forget the services, 
Eis manifested yesterday, of Mr. Abbot's son, who has developed a knowledge of bees 
bhat is almost instinctive, and who handles even the venomous hybrids with an ease 
and a confidence that are rewarded by his immunity from punishment." We have to 
thank the general manager for his courtesy and consideration on the occasion of our 
visit on Tuesday. 

SiE Michael Costa.— It has been erroneously announced by some journals that Sir 
Michael Costa has gone to recruit his health at the baths of Ischia (Gulf of Naples). 
JThe composer, who is quite well, is paying a round of visits in England, which he will 
not leave until after the Leeds Musical Festival, when he will go to Berlin. Madame 
Adelina Patti is at Dieppe, and Madame Nilsson at Coburg, on a visit to the duke and 
duchess, as also Mr. Sullivan. Mdlle. Tietjens is at Aix.

CREMOENE GARDENS, AND THE CHELSEA VESTRY. 
AVe heave always had something like a contempt for the doings of vestries— they are 
composed mostly of a class of busybodies and meddlers, holding but an inferior position 
in a parish — the better educated and more sensible amongst the ratepayers not bein" 
ambitious to mix with a class, who meet at taverns and public houses to discuss the 
business of the parish, and legislate over malt liquors ; besides the time consumed in 
attending to parochial affairs, can be better employed by men whose time is of value. 
Want of intelligence is usually the offspring of bigotry and prejudice — 

" Remember when the judgment's weak 
The prejudice is strong," 

sings Apollo to the scolding duenna in Midas. So it is in parish matters. Pew men 
of intelligence and position allow themselves to be thrust amongst those " little goes " 
in the community whom we have just described ? The following report of a meeting 
of the Chelsea Vestry, to oppose the granting of a dancing licence to Cremorne 
Gardens, is evidently the offspring of the two qualities which usually distinguish the 
doings of these parochial legislators — namely prejudice and bigotry, which are mostly 
accompanied by ignorance. We give the report : " At the fortnightly meeting of the 
Chelsea Vestry, Mr. Livingston presiding, the clerk reported infer alia, that Mr. John 
Baum, the lessee of Cremorne Gardens, intended to apply to the Middlesex magistrates 
for a renewal of the dancing licence he formerly held. Mr. Eobert Cox, the represent- 
ative of the parish at the Metropolitan Board of Works, moved a resolution to the 
effect that the vestry should oppose the granting of a dancing licence and a music licence 
to Cremorne Gardens. The Clerk read a memorial from Canon Cromwell praying the 
vestry to oppose the application. Mr. Lawrence seconded the motion. Mr. A. W. 
Sydney strenuously opposed the motion, and submitted that the vestry had nothing to 
do with Cremorne. Mr. John Baum said all the tradesmen were in favour of the Gardens, 
and would be very sorry if he did not get his licence. He asked them to leave the 
matter in the hands of the magistrates, and urged that he deserved some consideration at 
their hands. The fireworks were let off very early, and no annoyance was caused to the in- 
habitants. He had now conducted the Gardens for fiveyears, andhad received no complaint 
whatever from the police. Mr. S. W. Eichards, although supporting the motion, admitted 
that the noise now from the Gardens, and the nuisances, had greatly abated. Mr. Cox 
replied, and the motion was put and carried, only two voting against it." What to these 
men is the pleasure of exercising a little " brief authority," is ruin to Mr. Baum^ who 
has spent a fortune on property, that to gratify the vanity and self-importance of a few 
vestrymen, is to become a perfect wreck. We hope the magistrates, taking into con- 
sideration the peaceable and respectable manner in which these gardens are conducted, 
will grant Mr. Baum the licences for which he seeks, and which he so well deserves. 

Alarming Accident at Sangers' Circfs. — Messrs. Sangers held a monster y^7e at 
Reading, on Wednesday afternoon and evening, and it was attended by more than IS.OOu 
people. In the evening an accident occurred by the fall of a large portion of the plat- 
form, on which were about 400 people. The crash led to screaming and shrieks by 
'^emales, and shouts were heard of several persons having been killed. A number of 
nen rendered assistance, and it was soon discovered that no one had been buried among 
the debris, or were fatally injured. Several were found to haye been cut about the face 
and hands by the fall, and one young man was so seriously hurt that he was sent off in 
a cab to the Berkshire Hospital. The supports of the platform gave way from not hav- 
ing been braced up. After the alarm had subsided, the performances proceeded.

And MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 



No. 16,348. MONDAY, Sept. 14, 1874. Price Id. 



ANOTHER GLANCE AT "MADAME ANGOT." 

" Madame Angot " improves, in our estimation, on every repetition : the manner in 
which it has been given at the Lyceum during Miss Soldene and Mr. Morton's short 
season comes very near to perfection. The music, although the principal airs are on 

tjevery barrel-organ, urban or suburban, is always fresh — is always enjoyable ; its spark- 
ling melodies, its admirably chosen songs and striking accompaniments — its adaptability 
to its purpose, its happy modulations and combinations, and its clever harmonies, alike 
point to the genius, no less than the tact, of its popular composer. Lecocq has 
evidently dramatic as well as musical feeling. Such a performance as that at the 
Lyceum would have given the composer a most favourable opportunity to have heard his 
work — excellently sustained, as it is, in every part. First, as the heroine, Miss Soldene's 
talent both as a vocalist and an actress is shown to great advantage ; what would operatic 
artistes of a former time have given to have been the possessors of Miss Soldene's 
dramatic genius ? — Miss Stephens, Mrs. Wood, Miss ShirrefF, Miss Inverarity, Miss 
Rainforth, ad infinitum ; with the exception of Miss Pyne, an artist in every sense of the 
word of the highest type, we have had nothing in days gone by to compare with such a 
combination of singing and acting. In Miss Soldene we have an exponent who is 

" capable of understanding both the music she interprets and the situation which inspires 
it : her vigorous delivery of some of the more passionate passages, and her delicate treat- 
ment of others requiring tenderness, grace, and expressions are worthy of high critical 
commendation — in reference to the latter qualification, let us refer to her performance 
in the duet with Clairette, in the second act, wherein she sings the second part, in a 
subdued yet fluent and impressive manner. Miss Selina Dolaro, who now is the 
Clairette, has a voice of full tone and admirable quality ; she uses it with great skill, 
and is evidently a disciple of a good vocal school : she sings with ease, grace, and power ; 
but why does she disfigure nerself by wearing the frightful amber dress — of the ugliest 
3f all periods — that of the first Empire ? Nothing on earth can be more unbecoming ! 
All the decorations of the time— stiff, awkward, and unmeaning — are quite offensive to 
good taste : if we are to be correct as to period let the severity, in costume at least, 

Receive a little modification. This is the only fault we can possibly find with Miss 
Dolaro's version of Clairette— her singing and acting are each admirable. Mr. 
Beverley's Ange Pitou is excellent— as a singer, with a pure tenor voice, he is very con- 
spicuous, and a great acquisition to such a company as the management here have got 
bogether. Mr. Laurant is an amusing Pomponnet ; Mr. Lewena a very efficient 
Larivaudiere ; Mr. E. Marshall a capitally grotesque Louchard ; and Mr. John Wallace 
a most agile and graceful Trenitz : nothing could be better or more comic than his intro- 
duction of the griffin-looking citizenesses— one of whom he presented as Citizeness 
Leicester Square— a very appropriate name for gorgeous vulgarity. Miss Clara Vesey 
is worthy of a higher trust, yet we should miss the quiet grace and ease (were sbe 
removed from the part), which now mark her performance of Hersilie— the other lady 
characters are well supported by Mrs. Johnson, Miss Barber, and Miss Cartbew. 
Orchestra and chorus are alike excellent. Miss Soldene will take her benefit on the 
26th inst. — the last night of performance. . • -c i i • i,-

1 And MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 



No. 16,349. TUESDAY, Sept. 15, 1874. Price Id. 



Adelphi Tsbate-e.— The return of Mr. J. S. Clarke to London, was signalized on 
Saturday at the Adelphi Theatre by the assemblage of a crowded audience, who received 
him in the most enthusiastic manner ; he appeared in the " serio-comic " drama, by Mr. 
Byron, now called " Eed Tape :" his performance of the lawyer, " commonly called lied 
Tape " — a name, by the bye that throughout the piece, he is never once called, was very 
clever. He also gave his celebrated performances in the pieces called " Amongst the 
Breakers" and " Toodles " The audience not only gave him a most boisterous welcome, 
but he was, throughout his performances, received with the most hilarious delight — the 
theatre being crowded in every part. 

G-AiETT Theatre. — On the withdrawal of " Led Astray " and conclusion of the 
"serious season " at the Gaiety, Mr. HoUingshead chose Offenbach's favourite "Princess 
of Trebizonde " with which to enliven his patrons, or, as Miss Farreu puts it, make 
them laugh, " as it is so long since a laugh has been heard in this house." "With three 
exceptions, the cast is the same as on its representation here two years ago, and we 
think there is nothing lost by these changes. Mr. J. Gr. Taylor has exchanged the part 
of Tampolini for that of Cabriole (originally played by Mr. Toole), and his acting is 
really first-rate ; the comic element is admirably sustained throughout ; Mr. Lyall is 
substituted for Mr. Taylor as Tampolini. The third change is the substitution of Miss 
Hunter for Miss Tremaine, as Zarretta ; this young lady has a very nice voice and gives 
great promise of becoming quite an acquisition to the company. Miss E. JFarren's 
Eegina, it is almost superfluous to praise; so well is it known and so admirably is every 
part undertaken by this talented young lady sustained. Miss Loseby and Mr. Soutar 
assume their original characters with great success. "Cox and Box" (with Messrs. 
Sullivan, Cecil, and Taylor) and Offenbach's "A Mere Blind" have nightly preceded the 
opera, and although only used as a stop-gap (pending the production of Lecocq's " Island 
of Bachelors," this evening) it has contributed to the formation of a most attractive 
programme. 

Vocal Competition. — A grand choral and solo vocal competition is to be held at the 
conclusion of the Liverpool Musical Festival on the 3rd October, in which numerous 
choral societies and solo vocalists will sing against one another for prizes of money, 
medals, and books. The musical assessors will be Sir Julius Benedict, Mr. Henry- 
Leslie, Mr. Joseph Barnby, Mr. J. L. Hatton, Mr. Brinley Eichards, Mr. J. F, 
Barnett, Mr. Arthur Sullivan, and Mr. Gc. A. Macfarren. This ia all very right and 
proper in its way, but, in our humble opinion, the money would be better employed in 
offering prizes for the best vocal and instrumental composition. It ia doubtful whether 
prizes given as rewards for singing have any real value, while a reasonable sum given 
for a new composition would not only bring talent into the field, but would be a matter 
of profit to the donors. Could not even now one or two supplemental prizes be given 

for this purpose ? i i i • 

David Gaeeick.— A letter written by David Garrick has turned up, and been given 
to the public ; it is curious :— " Friday morn. Stone— You are the best fellow in the 
world. Bring the Cupids to the theatre to-morrow. If they are under six and weU- 
made, you shall have a guinea apiece for them. If you can get two good murderers, I 
will pay you handsomely, particularly the spouting fellow who keeps the apple-stand on 
Tower-hill. The cut in his face is quite the thing. Pick me up an alderman or two tor 
ilichard, if you can ; and I have no objection to treat with you for a, comely mayor. 
The barber will not do for Brutus, although I think he wiU succeed in Mat.— D.li.

JOTTINGS AT HASTINGS. 
We _ have got a surly consent from our sub— who assumes supreme com- 
mand in our absence— we have got a grim kind of " yes " to our application for 
permission to let a few more "jottings at Eastings " appear. He doesn't like llastinea 



we^^now. Why he doesn't, we don't know— unless his inherent dislike to anythin- 
having " the form " of work, renders him jealous of the relaxation his superior officer is 
taking in this most enjoyable place. We find Hastings— weather notwithstanding— a 
most delightful retreat ! We gaze on its beautiful sea with rapture- we view^tho 
rippling (or dancing as the case may be,) of its splendid waters— we enjoy the luxuries 
of its handsome pier — we join in the promenade, and, looking upon audi admiring " the 
fairest of the fair " in one of England's most favoured spots, we join the happy throne 
— we dine oif its best viands, we discuss its choicest wines — we mingle with its best 
society, and we retire to rest on our downy pillow — all made more happy because we 
are at Hastings — all made doubly more happy by the couleur de rose shed over all our 
doings by the presence of all that is dear to us in life. Such is the happy lot of a con- 
tented editor — an office often much abused and misunderstood: he is generally, nay 
mostly, looked upon with a kind of awe, amounting sometimes to dignified contempt — 
his ways excite wonder — his edict, dismay. He is fawned upon while he is hated ; — with 
one hand his cheek (by the bye, he has plenty of that) is smitten ; with the other his 
head is stroked : he is feared, he is hated, even while he is caressed. But, let us say, 
that a more genial heart than that of an editor cannot be found — he is all goodness and 
meekness — he overflows with the " milk of human kindness," and with honey from the 
hives of Mount Hybla : therefore a great mistake is made by those who never love, but 
only fear him. It is the confounded sub ! — it is the discontented, half-fed, under-bred, 
scowling sub, who does all the mischief, and brings the character — the amiable, modest 
character — of an editor into so much disrepute. Here are we, actually afraid of him — 
We are not allowed to write for our own journal without permission — we may not even 
look at his " copy," much less alter a single line : all the nonsense the misguided 
individual writes — that is, writes in our absence — goes into the paper without a single 
correction. We often exclaim to our lovely companion, whose soft hand smoothes our 
daily as well as our nightly pillow — we often exclaim, we wish our sub would commit 
some deed of dreadful note, and expiate his crime within the walls of some very safe 
retreat. But no ; he may be stupid ; he may be a candidate for Earleswood ; but he is 
not so foolish as he looks : he lives to torment us. Our fair compagnon du voyage, whose 
innocent mind, full of the most refined fancies, never harbours one unkindly thought, 
often whispers timidly in our editorial ear— " Oh, I wish there were no subs!" 
Since we last wrote Mr. Faeqtjhaeson has been entertaining the visitors on the pier : 
lie has been most successful— his description of " Mrs. Watkins's party," and the 
excellent manner in which he sang Eussell's " Ship on Fire," were received with immense 
applause. Miss Jessie Giles also has been very much admired here. Maeeiott's 
Band is really a first-rate thing ; frequent encores— rather unusual in pier music— are 
the consequence of their capital performance. We may remark that several very 
clever soloists are amongst the number of artists who form this band. We have con- 
fined the publication of this Number to Hastings, as a mark of our approval of its enter- 
tainments, its hospitality, and its society. Long may those advantages and attractions 
gladden the heart of that section of the London community who seek health and 
pleasure on its lovely coast !

A FEW MORE WORDS ABOUT DRURY LANE. 
We were ac^ain at Drury Lane Theatre, the other nif^ht, and we give a few of the 
impressions which were made upon us by the performance of" Amy Robsart,"and the open- 
ing of the pantomime. In the first place, after glancing at the masterly and graceful act- 
ing by Mr. Creswick of the rather thankless part of Varney, and after stating that he is 
the best representative of the character we have yet seen, we must offer to Miss Edith 
Stuart a high tribute of praise for her admirable reading and nice elocution — her distinct 
enunciation, and her delicate and sometimes forcible modulation of voice — in the 
character of Queen Elizabeth. Lacking two not unimportant qualifications certainly 
; for such a part — those, namely, of physical power and commanding presence — no better 
representative could be found ; in all intellectual points of view, Miss Stuart's treat- 
ment of the part was more than ordinarily satisfactory. In characters of a more juvenile 
and tender kind, where the delicate feelings and higher passions are to be portraved, 
we think Miss Stuart's success would be assured. Miss Bessie King now plays the 
part — Miss Stuart having gone to the Adelphi. "We were impressed also by some of the 
scenes in which Miss Wallis appeared, and although less perfect than Miss Stuart as a 
reader, and less real in the expression of her emotion generally, there were many, very 
many, good points in her performance : that, for one instance, where she falls prostrate 
at the feet of the queen : there was a degree of naturalness in her gesture and manner — a 
kind of self-abandonment, that created quite a sensation. As we have said before, in 
reference to Miss Wallis, she possesses the attributes of a good tragic actress : she is 
not yet perfect in her art, but time and practice will accomplish for her all those 
characteristics of which she is now deficient. We cannot accept Mr. Sinclair's version 
^ of the courtier-like Leicester as the proper one — in several parts of it something is 
svanting — presence, grace, and style ; yet few could be found now upon the stage, who 
would be better adapted to do the character justice; nor can we realize Michael Lam- 
Journe in Mr. Brittain Wright's swaggering representation. In all other respects 
ihe acting was perfectly satisfactory : Mr. Terriss makes a natural and hearty Tressillian : 
\e pleads his cause in a manly and unaffected manner ; and Mr. F. Charles does the 
ittle required of him, as the Earl of Sussex, with earnestness and ability. A little part 
)layed by Miss C. Jecks — the daughter of old Foster — shows that young lady's capability 

receive a higher trust. The pantomime opening is a capital wind-up to the evening's 
sntertainment : here Mr. B. Wright is more in his element ; as the burlesque King he 
vas really comic ; and Miss Coveney, as the disguised Prince, evinced an equal amount 
•f grace and vocal ability : on the evening we were present, she met with an accident, 
?hich, fortunately, must have been but slight, as she very courageously made no fuss 

ibout it, and went on with the part, although evidently in pain ; her leg got jamnied 
a the trap-door. Miss Kuasell, whose voice is both powerful and of excellent quality, 
^ lang a song, and obtained a well-earned encore. Mr. Fred. Evans's talent is simply- 
Sliagical : his disappearance at one part of the stage, and his reappearance almost during^ 
Biiilhe same instant at another are quite bewildering. Besides this, he is a man ©t" 
i^'nquestionable ability: it is not only agility of limb he displays — there is mmd in. 
ill he does. Altogether, an evening cannot now be better spent than by visiting Drarj 
j^jiane Theatre. 

1 A NICE Heayt Touch.— a lady lately remarked to a well-known professor, whose 
ervices she had just engaged, " You will be pleased with my daughter as a pupil, J feel 
are J sbe is exceedingly clever, and has such a nice heavy touch for sacred music."

No. 16,352. FRIDAY, Sept. 18, 1874. Price Id. 



Me. Alfred Burnett's Entertainment.— Messrs. Maskelyne and Cooke having 
deemed it expedient to take a few weeks' relaxation, their hall is, during their absence, 
occupied by Mr. Alfred Burnett, a gentleman new to England, but apparently a great 
Transatlantic celebrity and favourite. The entertainment, which is similar in character 
to those given by Woodin and Maccabe, is really a very amusing one. Nothing can be 
conceived more essentially comic and diverting than a sketch called " The Preacher from 
Hepsidam," rendered by Mr. Burnett in character. In another sketch, " Mr. and Mrs. 
Caudle," (scarcely less amusing), he is assisted by Miss Helen Nash, a lady of consider- 
able dramatic ability, who afterwards recited a poem, " The Level and the Square," with 
a great amount of feeling and pathos. Mr. Burnett's character-delineations are perhaps' 
the least remarkable. With his imitations of the doctor, actor, clergyman, and lawyer, 
in his introductory remarks, we were much pleased. The entertainment throughout is 
decidedly American .' we can cordially recommend it to our readers as a very agree- 
able manner of passing an afternoon or evening. A word of praise is due to Miss Cora 
Burnett, who presided at the piano with considerable ability. 

Mr. Toole's Opinion or Nia&aea. — A correspondent of an American paper says : 
*' Amongst other questions, Mr. Toole was asked what he thought of Niagara ? His 
reply was — " Niagara is the greatest sight I ever saw. I saw it the evening I arrived, 
and got up before daylight to see it again in case none of the water should be left. It 
can't last long, anyhow, and I wrote to several of my London friends to come over soon, 
as I didn't believe it could go on at the same rate. I told the hotel proprietor that I 
never knew any performance had such a ' long run ;' but he assured me that he bad 
made special arrangements that the fall season would continue until further notice. 
When we were under the falls I had to pay for my costume. This was the first time I 
ever paid for ' dressing up,' as I generally receive pretty large sums for putting on 
Bccentric costumes." 

A New and Fortunate Tenor. — There is a new tenor of extraordinary talent at the 
Theatre du Paris, of whom a correspondent thus writes : — " The new tenor is M. Devillier, 
md he charms everybody. He is a Frenchman, a native of the Pas de Calais, and a very short 
time ago was employed as a cooper to make herring barrels at a little place called Portelle. 
A lady, a friend of the Empress Eugenie, happening to hear him sing at a concert given 
it Boulogne for some charitable purpose, spoke to him and ofi"ered to give him intro- 
iuctions to Paris and pecuniary facilities for cultivating his voice. Here he profited so 
rapidly by the means at his disposal that he soon acquired distinction, and obtained an 
3ngagement at the principal opera house at a salary of £40 per week. This for a man 
who was glad to earn 43. 2d. a day by his trade was a considerable advance ; but his 
friends say it is totally inadequate, and he has already received an offer of £4,000 for a 
tour in America, with all expenses paid. To M. Eubini, of Pans, belongs the credit ot 
advancing the material interests of M. Devillier, who is said to be as modest and sensible 
1 IS he is talented. He is now twenty-six years of age, has a wife and two little children, 
md is not intoxicated with his good fortune. The man who sang sweetly three years 
xgo when making herring barrels on the quay at Portelle has now an income of l,^00f. 
1 week, and probably will command double as much when he returns from bis 
Transatlantic tour." , 

New Opera — The new theatre at Pesth will be opened with a new opera, composed 
for the occasion by Eckel, the libretto by Eugene Eakosy, the subject being borrowed 
from the history of Saint Etienne, King of Hungary.

PROMENADE CONCERTS. 

We were at the Promenade Concerts on Thursday evening : the theatre waa crowded. 

"We heard the overture to Oberon extremely well played : the chorus which followed it', 

•' Priere au Soleii," by Herve. is a clever composition, and it was capitally <riven by the 

chorus— the members of which have not failed to profit by singing together— it was 

faultless both as to time and tune. Mendelssohn's Italian Symphony was nicely played 

by the band — the andante especially: Madlle. Liebe— a "female "violinist played a 

concerto on the violin, from Masaniello, most delicately : the purity of her tone and 

•delicate execution were both conspicious ; firmness of finger and a free and graceful 

, bow-arm are also amongst her chief characteristics : although the composition was lon^, 

she received an encore. Mr. Pearson sang a song composed expressly for these concerts 

by the conductor, called " The young Sailor " — the melody is touching and pretty, but 

Mr. Pearson's rendering of it is rather feeble — the last two lines especially were 

ineffective from the vocalist dropping his voice at the close. Mr. Varley kelson, who 

J sang " My Sweetheart when a boy," was better ; his method is more skilled, and he 

,1 ielivers his high chest notes with more certainty and power. Keler Bela's Valse and 

i Hungarian dance were well played ; they are rather attractive compositions — " Home, 

Mweet home," being introduced into the first. Mr. Levy was as usual encored in his 

Cornet solo ; Signor Agnesi, whom we consider a little overrated, sang an air, " Vieni la 

nia vendetta." from Lucrezia ; we neither like his voice nor style : the jerking out of 

some of the upper notes gives an appearance of eflE'ort. The first part wound up with 

I capital selection from " Trovatore," played and sung with fine effect. The entertain- 

nent provided here is of the very best kind, and fully deserves the patronage it 

'eceives. 

GrEEENWicH Lecture Hall. — The Saturday popular dramatic and musical entertain- 

aents under the management of Mr. W. R. Norris were resumed on Saturday last 

tl a the presence of an attentive and appreciative audience; — the first part of the 

*' programme was devoted to vocal and instrumental music ; amongst the most conspicuous 

f those who took part in the performances were the Misses Blanche Owen and Eoae 

diontague, who sang " Say a kind word when you can," and " The Forsaken ;" — Mr. G. 

1. Grraham, caused much amusement in the song entitled " The Picnic Party." Mr. B. 

I. Costa sang a comic song written by himself, " As I stood by the bank," and received 

n encore. The dramatic portion of the entertainment waa Planche's Historical drama, 

Charles XII," which waa capitally played throughout. Mr. Henry Bedford appeared 

s Adam Brock, and did full justice in his interpretation of that honest and 

ccentric character ; he was loudly applauded throughout. Mr. J. G-. 

si fobbs was a satisfactory Charles. Grustavus was played by Mr. P. Hinton 

dth care and discrimination; his love scenes with Ulrica were very effective 

Ir. A. J. Saunders, who appeared for the first time at this Hall, gave 

highly finished and characteristic rendering of Major Vanberg. There is, however, but

^nd MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 



No. 16,354 MONDAY, Sept. 21, 1874. Price Id. 



NOTICES OF NEW MUSICAL PUBLICATIONS. 

We find we are somewhat in arrear with the notice of new musical works : we shall' 

Jowever, endeavour to make amends by clearing our table in this and succeeding 

C lumbers. It is some time since we received — The Noeth and West. Song. 

i| Written by D. Morley ; composed by IFenry Morley, R.A.M. Hutchings and Eomer,' 

Oonduit Street. A very creditable effort, both as to verse and music. It is a kind of 

J welcome to the bride of the Duke of Edinburgh, and the melody, which is of a popular 

ind, will procure for it, as it becomes known, a hearty welcome in the concert-room, as 

ellas in private musical circles. The words are a good specimen of patriotic feeling, 

msibly expressed : it will be found suitable to almost any voice, ransinw as it does from 

Mat to F. "" 



The Watchman. Poetry by F. E. Weatherly ; music by Joseph P. Knight. W. 

[orley, Upper Street, Islington. A song by the popular composer of "She- wore a 

wreath of roses," set to some charming verses by Mr. Weatherly, is a boon to the 

re lusical public. The subject chosen by the writer is a lovely little romance — in which 

'"'le child of "The Watchman " comes each morning to lead her father home; but the 

fctle " fond footsteps " are suddenly lost to him; at length, " angel's wings " are near 

im, and the child has flown from heaven to lead her father home, where all the angels 

hisper, " The Watchman has come home." Those of our readers who are acquainted 

ith the songs of Mr. Knight, will readily understand how much pathos and sentiment he 

_ IS infused into the pretty melody, that he has here produced and so skilfully harmonized. 

he song requires but a moderate compass to do it justice — its range is from C below to 

flat. We give this admirable composition our most cordial recommendation. 

EocKED IN THE Ceadle oe THE Deep. Poetry by Mrs. Willard. Music by Joseph 
ailip Knight. W. Morley. This is the only edition authorized by the composer, 
liose additions and improvements it contains ; and a notice of the transfer of the copy- 
?ht by the composer to the publisher appears on the title page. It is published in 
ree keys — those of G — contralt or bass ; B flat — mezzo or baritone : C — soprano or 
nor. There is a simple beauty about this composition that strongly recommends it to 
calists generally ; and when we find that it is adapted so as to be made available to 
y class of voice we can only predict for this edition a very wide circulation — a reward 
lich it richly merits. The devotional and simple elegance of the words will also be one 
its principal recommendations. 

Only to Know. Poetry by Eea; Music by Alfred Plumpton. William Morley. 

lis is a pretty and simple melody, set to words ofa not very inspiring kind — that is, 

a musician— the rhythm is cramped and the sense somewhat strained ; nor can we 

mit the repetition of the word "again" at the end of the third line; it may not be 

Stended for rhyme, but it has the appearance of such an intention ; altered thus, " Only 

fain your voice to bear," would have removed the objection. Yet, as a whole, the 

mg is .worthy of critical commendation for the smoothness and grace of its melody ; 

iis easy of accomplishment and may well be introduced by teachers on account of the 

^)rds having no unrefining tendency. It is published in two keys — those of F and A 

it. The work is dedicated to C. B. L., whoever that initialled personage may be : such 

iHferal dedication has a novelty about it, for we have never seen initials so honoured 

Ifore, if we except those of the celebrated Miss Landon— the unhappy L. E. L.

No. 16,355 TUESDAY, Sept. 22, 1874. Price Id. 



Hatmakket Theatre. — Madlle. Beatrice has produced " Nos Intimes," under the 
itle of " Our Friends." It will be remembered that the fair manager of the present 
laymarket company appeared in the principal character some time ago at the Olympic. 
'his is the third and last of the series of reproductions contemplated by Madlle. 
Beatrice ; and, it may be added, the best. Her acting is vigorous and tender, in turn : 
1 the principal scene she produced quite a sensation : she is well supported by her com- 
any, few of the members of which, however, are known to a metropolitan audience ; 
ut several are entitled to become London favourites. 
CHAIIIN& Ckoss Theatre. — Miss Lydia Thompson's troupe made a highly successful 
ebiit at this theatre on Saturday night, when the house was literally crammed. 
" The Island op Bachelors " at the Gaiety. — Another of Lecocq's lively and 
ttractive operas has been presented to the English playgoers. " Les Cents Vierges," 
aving been adapted, and the libretto rendered fit for representation in this country, by 
Ir. E. Reece: it was produced under the title of " The Island of Bachelors " at the 
raiety, on the evening of Monday week, and with the most complete success. Mr. 
eece is to be heartily congratulated on the manner in which he has performed his 
)mewhat difficult task ; every particle open to objection, or ofiensive to good taste, has 
Ben removed, and the libretto is smartly and very cleverly put together. It is needless 
ere to enter into the plot, which is, as a matter of course, of a slender character. In 
le musical portion of the piece lies its chief attraction ; many of the principal airs are 
1 no way inferior to those that have become so popular in " Madame Augot " and 
G-irofle-Girofla." Indeed, nothing can be more charming than the melody of " Take 
)me Eggs and Crack'em," rendered by Mr. A. Cecil, and the duet, "We are off to see," 
7 Misses Farren and Loseby ; each o'f these pieces received a double encore. Miss 
'arren's song in the second act, " The time for men to rule the day," is also an exquisite 
)ecimen of musical writing, and is sung to admiration. A recitative and air, " Give 
6 back my dear land," delightfully sung by Miss Loseby, is likely to become very 
Dpular. But perhaps the most attractive and catching melody in the opera is that of 
le duet, "Oh, you mighty clever creature," sung with much quaint humour by^Misses 
arren and Loseby. To the lot of Miss Farren, Mr. A. Cecil, and Mr. J. G. Taylor 
le greater portion of the fun falls, and admirably they sustain it. We scarcely need 
Iter much into detail to describe the performance of artistes so generally perfect. Mr. 
ecil is a great acquisition to the Gaiety company, notwithstanding the fact that the 
3use is a little too spacious for his voice. Mr. C. Lyall, as the Governor of the Island, 
id Mr. Forrester, as his factotum, add mwch to the effect of the opera. Miss Loseby 
ive a most artistic rendering of the part of Gabrielle, singing and acting her part with 
3r usual taste and ability. Mr. Maclean, as the Captain, and Mr. Ludwig as the 
mkeeper, both acquitted themselves creditably. Miss A. Cook made much of the 
.Qall part of Fanny. The opera is mounted in Mr. Hollmgshead s well known and 
\ beral style ; and has proved a most unmistakeable success, .bidding fair to rival m 
lipularity any of its more pretentious predecessors. A capital little comic drama, 
A Happy Family," by Mr. J. G. Taylor, and « Do-Ee-Mi-Fa," are also being

SWISS GARDENS, SHOREHAM. 

"We never remain in Brighton any length of time without running over (or perhaps it 

would be more truthful to say training over,) to pay a visit to our old friend, Goodchild 

that we may join in the variety of amusements which he offers to the pleasure-seekers 

w-ho reside in Brighton or Worthing. We have always looked upon Mr. Q-oodchild as 

one of the best and most liberal of public caterers ; he invariably provides an excellent 

entertainment for the " small charge" of one shilling; for when ouceyou have deposited 

the coin with the man who guards the gates of the Sussex Paradise, you are not again 

called upon to dive into the depths of your pockets to enable you to witness, the enter- 

.-ainments advertised — too often the case in our public gardens. For this shilling you 

nay consult the Oracle, and learn your future fate ; and it is as well to know that for- 

;une smiles upon the visitors to Shoreham. If you should happen to be " A jolly Young 

tVaterman " you can row your Polly about in the transparent lake, talk of Wapping^ 

md how you would act if those ambitious G-ermans were ever to attempt to ineade your 

lomestic hearths. For the lovers of nature there are the Conservatories filled with the 

;hoicest plants, and the Aviary with its two hundred feathered inhabitants. The 

oung folks can enjoy their swings and roundabouts, or take a peep at the Cosmoramas. 

)n the lawn, we can play at trap-ball, or quoits, or try our skill at the rifle range, lu 

act, everybody, should they so choose, can amuse themselves, or if, perchance, they get 

red of their own company, can he amused by witnessing an excellent dramatic one in 

16 theatre. Somehow or other, Mr. Groodchild always manages to get a good working 

ompany together, and those that have the good fortune to appear on 

is stage often find it a very easy stage to London. We remember to 

ave first seen at these gardens Mr. E. Marshall, Mr. George Belmore, and 

any others who are now London favourites ; and, if we are not much mistaken, 

lere is a gentleman at the present time, of the name of J. S. Hewitt, who will some day 

5 giving a good account of himself in London. We saw him play Joseph Surface, in 

le screen scene from " The School for Scandal," and likewise Sam, in " Perfection," and 

e have certainly seen both those characters much worse played in our metropolitan 

eatres. There is also a very useful and clever actress. Miss Amy Forrest, who played 

ady Teazle and Kate O'Brien ; this lady possesses a really pleasing voice, and aaug the 

lUad of Kate Kearney very sweetly. The company also consists of Miss F. Howell, 

"adame Holden, Mr. W. Bourne, Mr. H. Anton, and Mr. F. J. Watts, who are all 

tremely good. The amusements conclude with a ball, in which happy couples trip it 

ray to the lively music of an excellent. band, conducted by Mr. W. Summerlad. We 

3re informed that a grand _/ei;e will be held on Thursday, the 21th inst., for the benefit 

the Brighton Volunteer Fire Brigade and Salvage Corps, under the patronage of his 

race the Duke of Kichmond, and a host of other big names. A very large attendance 

expected to witness the various attractions announced. As the season is now drawmg 

a close we advise all visitors at Brighton (who have never been to the Swiss Gardens) 

do so ere it is too late, and we feel certain they will not regret taking our advice.

NOTICES OF NEW MUSICAL PUBLICATIONS. 
Why do I love thee yet ? Words and Music by Georgo Liuley. Morloy, Upper 
Street, K This is a new edition of a popular song ; it is published in two keys, in F 
and in B flat. The melody is pretty, simple, and easy of accomplishment — the 
accompaniment effective ; in fact, the song altogether is one of a character so popular 
during the lifetime of the composer : if not very striking for originality and musical 
skill and learning, Linley's vocal music was at least in good demand and very fair repute. 
This ballad is equal in merit to any of the songs of the class to which we have 
alluded. 



When eyenino shades. "Written by Isaac Hearnden, R. N. ; composed by EverarJ 
B. Holmes. Cramer and Co. This is a smoothly written poem, discovering, however, 
little or no purpose ; the words are perfectly inoffensive, and rhythmical withal, but 
we expected to find some young sailor dreaming on his homeward voyage of a loving 
heart that yearned for his return, especially as the writer is a young naval officer, and 
the song is dedicated to Capt. Arthur G-ordon Q-ordon ; but at the end of three, albeit 
very well written verses, we find ourselves precisely where we began. The music is of 
average merit, fairly and correctly written, requiring a more than moderate compass 
to do the vocal part of it justice ; it extends from E to A flat. 

Pepita, the Meeey Gipsy Maid. Poetry by P. E. Weatherly ; Music by Joseph 
P. Knight. W. Morley, Upper Street, Islington. A pretty and attractive song — one 
both in reference to music and words that is sure to make its way ; the melody is a very 
good specimen of the composer's inventive ability, being free from hackneyed phrases, yet 
popular in its character ; the song, altogether, is really an excellent specimen of the class 
mf music to which it belongs. The words are from the able pen of Mr. Weatherly, 
vhose ear for poetry is wonderfully correct and musical ; and we think Mr. Knight 
las done wisely in choosing poetry in which original thought and grace of expression are 
)oth conspicuously developed j we give the first verse as a specimen, merely premising 
;hat it in no way exceeds in merit, the two stanzas which succeed it : — 

" Who sings so gay by sun and shade, so sweet by moon and star ? 
It is the little gipsy maid who comes from lands afar; 
And all who hear her notes of glee, awhile forget their woes, 
By hill and meadow, fancy free, she sings where'er she goes. 
Viva la bella, la Zingarella, viva, viva, la Pepita I" 

' Pepita " will be welcomed no less by public singers than by amateurs — each of which 
lass will find in effectiveness it will amply repay their attention. The compass is from 
D below to F. 

Like a Summer Shower. Ballad. Poetry by Mary MacDermott ; music by Alfred 
?lumpton. W. Morley. We must congratulate Mr. Plumpton on having produced a 
aelody of simple beauty : there is about the writings of this gentleman considerable 
acility of expression and simplicity of design — such songs are a great advance upon the 
aerely inoffensive character of similar productions. There is a gracefulness of thought 
loquently expressed in the verses, creditable alike to Miss MacDermott's taste aind 
•oetic feeling. Like the song just noticed it may be advantageously used in the concert 
oom, and also be recommended by teachers to their pupils both for the effectiveness 
f the music and the gentle sentiment of the words. 

*** The other music we have received will be reviewed in an early Number.

J 
And MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY, 



No. 16,358 FRIDAY, Sept. 25, 1874. Price IJ. 



MR. JOHN HENKEN'S MUSIC CLASSES. 
_ A co>-CEET was pven on Wednesday evening by the Select Choir and Advanced Music 
i^lass of the Birkbeck Institution, under the experienced direction of Mr. John Ilenken 
:he concert opened with Crampton's part-song, " When the leaves are turninf^ brown '' 
i«i ^hich was very well sung by the choir ; other compositions of the same kind'' received 
J° imilar treatment, and obtained in several instances well-earned encores. Amongst the num- 
i„ »er thus rewarded, was an arrangement of Offenbach's " Lady, look down," from Genevieve. 
e, \e way in which this duet (arranged in parts) was sung by the choir was very praise- 
01 worthy, and although a little tendency was now and then shown to drag the time, the 
1" onductor managed most cleverly to keep his forces up to the mark— his positive' and 
_ )ronounced style being very effective under such circumstances : ho is evidently an 
mthusiast in his art, and it is to us something refreshing to find a man who not only 
irings a good share of musical knowledge and learning to aid him in his vocation, but 
El Iso that kind of feeling without which the musical art becomes mechanical— a body 
15 without a soul. Other engagements prevented us from staying the performance out : 
lit while we were present we heard some very good solo-singing— Miss Lillian Barrett 
ang Barker's ballad, " The Haunted Stream" — a stream beneath which we are told there 
re "diamonds rare," and to which, with its caverns of gold, a knight is lured; but 
rhat becomes of the knight or the " fairy queen," whose faithless blandishments are 
ivished upon him, we are not told — 'in fact, the story has a beginning but no end ; it i:s 
ne of those instances of some certainly pretty music being wedded to a string of " non- 
3nse verses," as John Barnett once said to us : he composed some of his music, he said 
) his own nonsense, and then put it into more literary hands for a libretto. To return 
) Miss Barrett ; she has a voice of excellent compass and good quality, and she sings 
ith taste and confidence ; we should have preferred the omission of some of her embel- 
sbments — both the run and the shake she introduced were a little imperfect ; Misa 
arrett, nevertheless, is a highly promising singer ; and had she confined herself to a 
jat cadence at the close of the song she would given us perfect satisfaction ; as it was, she 
iceived an encore, which she honestly earned. Miss Kate Windridge sang " Come 
ith me to Fairyland," and with a little more power — or rather energy, for at the close 
her song she showed she had more voice than we had given her credit 
T — she will make an impression ; there is a quiet archness about her which 
rather attractive ; she, also, gained an encore. The tenor and bass were Mr. 
. Sleigh and Mr. Stewart Armour — the first has a very nice tenor voice, 
bich he employs with much skill, and the latter a good sound 
iritone of about two octaves range. They were each honoured with encores in al) 
ley respectively undertook. The manner in which Mr. Armour sang Cherry's " Black- 
iiith " and " Loving Smile " from Faust, produced quite a sensation, and a loud 
• monstration in his favour. Mr. Stiles, who accompanied the part-music, proved him- 
1 If a competent pianist and a good musician. Mr. Henken's classes consist of au 
:<;3mentary, an advanced, and a select class. They will meet respectively on the 1st, oth, 
t d 6th, of next month. Those of our readers, and we write from our personal know- 
Hge, who wish to gain a good insight into vocal music, at a moderate rate, will do well to 
j!n these classes, of which prospectuses may be had at the institution.

And MUSICAL REVIEW with DAILY BILLS of the PLAY. 

No. 16,359 SATURDAY, Sept. 26, 1874. Price Id. 

Lyceum Theatre.— Miss Emily Soldene will sing for the last time in England until 
her return from America, this evening, when she appears, on the occasion of 
her benefit, in the clever comic opera, " Fleur de Lys," The position which Miss 
Soldene occupies on the lyric stage would have doubtless ensured the success of hep 
benefit night, even with a much less attractive programme. Madame Seliua Dolaro will 
also appear on the occasion, to give strength to the cast. We cordially hope that Miss 
Soldene's success in America will equal that which she has achieved in her own countrv. 

Mfi.F. B. Chattebton.— The playgoiug public will now have an opportunity of 
rewarding, in some measure, and acknowledging the enterprise of certainly the most 
popular and energetic manager of modern times. This gentleman— who is, in fact, •' three 
gentlemen in one " — tria juncta in uno — announces his annual benefit for Monday, 
Tuesday, and "Wednesday next. "In his capicity of caterer for the public," says a con- 
temporary, " Mr. Chatterton has won the good opinion of all, and he deserves to meet 
with the heartiest recognition." He is at once the ruler of the destinies of three of our 
principal theatres — Drury Lane, Princess's, and the Adelphi — and the eaergy he has 
shown, and the talent and the tact he has exhibited in their management, have been a 
complete boon to the playgoing public. On that account, if on no other, he fully 
deserves to be universally rewarded. 

The Deama at CAMBEiDaE. — Our readers will scarcely give credence to the fact we 
are about to state : At the Cambridge Theatre a few evenings ago, the performances 
wound up with the tragedy of " Maria Martin ; or, the Murder at the Eed Barn.'* 
The curtain fell after William Corder, the murderer, had been brought to the scaffold, 
and with the rope dangling above his head " improved the occasion." The audience 
refused to leave, and when the orchestra played the National Anthem, it was received 
with hisses and clamour, and they still kept their places. At length, Mr. Frederick 
Hughes, the manager, presented himself, and apologised for being unable to gratify his 
patrons by actually hanging the actor — Mr. Concannen — who represented the murderer 
unless with his own consent, which he was hardly likely to give. The " gods " shouted 
furiously, "Bring him out with the rope round his neck." Of course the demand was 
aot complied with, and after more demonstrations of their desire to see the 
representative of the Suffolk murderer actually hung, the crowded audience slowly, and 
with manifest reluctance, left the house. They have apparently strong realistic dramatic 
Qotions at this seat of learning. It would be curious to know if they are as far advanced 
it Oxford ! If so they might gratify their taste for capital punishment by administering 
the dose to one another. 

Accident to Miss Blackwood. — At the Lynn Theatre, on Wednesday evening, 
' Little Nelly " was being performed by Miss Virginia Blackwood, Mr. Q-. Murray 
Wood, and their company of artists, when during the closing act Miss Blackwood, whilst 
Derforming the Marchioness in the romping scene, fell heavily on to the stage. She 
'emained in an unconscious state for some time, and the audience, which was a large 
me, was raised to the highest pitch of excitement. The performance was stopped, and 
ifter waiting a longtime the audience dispersed. On Thursday the following bulletin, 
ligned by Dr. Lowe, medical adviser to the Prince of Wales, was issued : " I certify that 
^iss Blackwood will be unable to perform this evening, in consequence of having sus- 
ained last night a displacement of the cartilage of the knee." Up to the last moment 
ve understand Miss Blackwood was progressing satisfactorily. 

The Royal Amphitheatre, Holborn, will open early in October, with a grand opera 
Jouffe and other entertainments.
